Detection and characterization of surface microbial contamination in emergency ambulances

Este es el resumen de nuestro trabajo titulado «Detection and characterization of surface microbial contamination in emergency ambulances» publicado en la revista American Journal of Infection Control sobre la potencial contaminación de las superficies de las ambulancias en el área metropolitana de Bilbao (Bizkaia, España).

Abstract: A cross-sectional study was performed in 10 emergency basic life support ambulances operating in Bilbao, Spain, to assess surface bacterial contamination. Presence of clinically relevant bacterial contamination suggests that disinfection of the studied basic life support ambulances was not optimal and represents a potential risk of infection for the patients transferred in them. It is critical to implement existing infection control and prevention protocols to resolve this issue.

Felicito a mis colegas Aketza Varona-Barquin, Sendoa Ballesteros-Peña, Sergio Lorrio-Palomino, Guillermo Ezpeleta, Verónica Zamanillo y Elena Eraso, por su excelente trabajo.
