This November, we have started activities to assess levels of resistant bacterial colonization in a range of neonatal units in various European Countries. We were able to successfully collect non-invasive samples from babies looked after on the neonatal intensive care unit in Basel, Switzerland.
All information was collected anonymously, meaning that individual babies cannot be identified. None of the parents whose babies were on the unit at the time of sample collection declined participation.
We want to say thank you to the participating families and the team on the unit for their full support in helping us to better understand the problem of resistant bacteria on neonatal units.
