Researchers from the University of Michigan have uncovered the latest battleground in the fight against multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs) or ‘superbugs’ – patients’ hands and ‘high-touch’ objects.
Researchers found that 14% of a sample of 399 hospital patients had antibiotic-resistant bacteria on their hands or in their nostrils early on in their hospital stay. Furthermore, 6% of the patients who didn’t have MDROs on their hands at the beginning of their hospitalisation tested positive later on in their stay.
