Epidemiology of aeromonas spp in a hospital

Journal of Hospital Infection 11(2): 169-175

Epidemiology of aeromonas spp in a hospital

The occurrence of Aeromonas spp. in a hospital water supply, in patients and in the local community was investigated. In healthy persons outside the hospital the isolation rate was 3.6% and among hospital patients it was 6%. Seven per cent of water samples yielded aeromonas strains. Isolates were typed by sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of sulphur-35 methionine labelled proteins of aeromonas isolates. No relationship between water and human isolates could be established, even when a strain of A. hydrophila producing Vero cell cytotoxin contaminated enteral feeds given to patients in the intensive care unit.
