Multidrug resistant Gram-negative organisms (MDRGN) are a type of Gram-negative bacteria with resistance to multiple antibiotics. Infections by MDRGN are associated with a high mortality rate and present an increasing challenge to the healthcare system worldwide.
In recent years, increasing evidence supports the association between the healthcare environment and transmission of MDRGN to patients and healthcare workers.
To better understand the role of the environment in transmission and acquisition of MDRGN, the authors of this study, published by Antimicrobial Resistance & Infection Control, conducted a utilitarian review based on literature published from 2014 until 2019.
