One in twenty Danish accident and emergency patients carries resistant bacteria

  05 July 2019

National public service broadcaster DR reported the conclusion of an analysis of eight accident and emergency wards in four administrative regions across Denmark.

“I think this is so many that we need to be alert in order to stop it spreading at hospitals, as well as in society,” professor and consultant doctor Christian Backer Mogensen of South Jutland Hospital, one of the researchers who worked on the study, told DR.

The results of the research are an “eye opener” which demand action, according to Mogensen.

Researchers in Denmark have not previously conducted studies of this type on resistant bacteria prevalence.
