Title: Staphylococcus aureus infections among Polish patients of selected hospital and care institutions: epidemiology and characteristics of microorganisms

Abstract:

Hospital infections are an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, especially if the etiological factor is drug-resistant microorganisms, and concems the population of the most vulnerable patients. The conducted research allowed to describe in detail the epidemiology of infections with S.aureus aetiology m southem Poland. Epidemiological analysis was carried out in vanous analytical areas, such as: type of care, population, clinical form of infection. Multicentre studies on nosocomial infections covered orthopaedic patients, newboms and long-term care residents. The PFGE typing was subjected to strains from neonatal and resident infections. Strains isolated from newboms were typed by the spa-typing method and the SCCmec chromosomal cassette was determined. As a result of the research it was found: (1) significantly higher incidence rate after knee prosthesis, while epidemiology and microbiology after the implementation of infections surveillance in hip arthroplasty did not differ from that expected; (2) in neonatology, horizontal transmission of MRSA strains; high consumption of glycopeptides in the treatment of MSSA (3) The presence of MRSA in locals is significantly associated with limited mobility: the Barthel scales can be used as a determinant of MRSA colonization in targeted screening (4) strong interpenetration of the community and ; hospital environment, which proves that drug-resistant strains are not the domain of institutional care. Among the tested neonatal isolates, the largest group was the spa tO 15 and at the same time SCCmeclV.
