Table 3 Total HR-GNR incidence for 2014

From: No nosocomial transmission under standard hygiene precautions in short term contact patients in case of an unexpected ESBL or Q&A E. coli positive patient: a one-year prospective cohort study within three regional hospitals

  Regional Hospital 1 Hospital 2 Hospital 3
ESBL 118 40 37 41
Q&A 54 14 20 20
CPE 3 1 0 2
S. maltophilia resistant to co-trimoxazole 1 1 0 0
MR P. aeruginosa 5 3 1 1
Total number of HR-GNR 181 59 58 64
Number unique HR-GNR positive patientsa 172 53 57 62
Number of admissions 61,817 18,837 23,637 19,343
Number of patient days 223,351 57,749 92,070 73,533
HR-GNR incidence rate per 10.000 admissions (95% CI) 27.8 (24.0–32.3) 28.1 (21.5–36.8) 24.1 (18.6–31.2) 32.1 (25.0–41.1)
HR-GNR incidence density per 10.000 patient-days (95% CI) 7.7 (6.6–8.9) 9.2 (7.0–12.0) 6.2 (4.8–8.0) 8.4 (6.6–10.8)
  1. aRepresents the number of unique patients. During admission, a patient could be positive for more than one HR-GNR type. Therefore, this number is lower than the sum of all HR-GNR subgroups
  2. HR-GNR Highly Resistant Gram Negative Rod, MR multi resistant, ESBL extended spectrum beta lactamase, Q&A enterobacteriaceae or Acinetobacter spp. resistant to fluoroquinolones and aminoglycosides, CPE carbapenemase producing enterobacteriaceae
