Abstract

The utilization of isolation precautions has increased in tertiary care hospitals due to the increase in colonization with multidrug-resistant organisms over time. We assessed the frequency of multidrug-resistant microorganisms responsible for implementation of contact precautions in the ICU of a tertiary care hospital over a 12-year period.
