Authorities try to calm fears over multi-resistance bacteria in hospitalsWednesday, 05 September 2018 11:07
According to Paul d'Otreppe, director of the association of Belgian hospital directors, doctors in Belgian hospitals are well aware of the existence of S. epidermidis. “This problem of multi-resistance bacteria is at the forefront of the concerns of all hospital directors,” he said. “This is not anything new, and not something we can’t deal with.”
However, he did admit the problem was increasing. Hospital reorganisation meant patients of similar pathologies were being grouped together, increasing the risk of cross-infection. On the other hand, he said, hospitals were investing more and more in matters of hygiene, while research was also playing its part in helping tackle the issue.
