- An increase of extensively drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (XDR-PA) took place in a surgical intensive care unit.
- Molecular typing confirmed a nosocomial outbreak was present.
- Transmission of XDR-PA had likely occurred via patient care oil for aromatherapy.
- Significance of exogenous sources for XDR-PA and importance of strict infection control are emphasized.
An increase of extensively drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (XDR-PA) in various clinical specimens among intensive care unit patients (nâ=â7) initiated an outbreak investigation consisting of patient data analyses, control of adherence to infection control guidelines, microbiologic surveys, and molecular-based studies. XDR-PA was detected in a jointly used aroma-oil nursing bottle for aromatherapy. We implemented the restriction of oil sharing among patients. Hence, the outbreak was controlled successfully.
