Mastering Hospital Antimicrobial Resistance and Its Spread Into the Community- the Role of Healthcare Workers

Medical staff will be screened for MRSA and ESBL (including: doctors, nurses, nurse aids, physical therapists, dietitians, Janitors and other medical staff).

To define the carriage of, and risk factors for carriage of resistant organisms among healthcare employees of carriers of resistant bacteria.

To define activities of healthcare employees who likely to lead to dissemination of resistant bacteria in rehabilitation centers.

Detailed activity:

Medical staff will be screened for MRSA and ESBL (including: doctors, nurses, nurse aids, physical therapists, dietitians, Janitors and other medical staff).

Screening will be performed by obtaining nares and perirectal cultures. Nares cultures will be obtained by ward staff or research personnel who are experienced in performing this activity: a moisture swab will be applied gently to the distal part of both nares. Perirectal cultures, will be taken by swab, who will be applied to the perirectal area, either by staff as mentioned above, or will be given to the healthcare workers to perform by himself (with explanation on how to perform it).
