This observation has been made in various contexts, including the studies executed in the Republic of Karelia and North Karelia , where two populations in adjacent areas live under different environmental conditions geographically.
Jernigan, M.D., Matthew Samore, M.D., Dennis Wallace, Ph.D., and Donald A. Goldmann, M.D.1 Infections due to these bacteria are often preceded by colonization of mucous membranes, pores and skin, wounds, or the gastrointestinal tract. Colonization occurs by means of indirect patient-to-patient transmission of MRSA and VRE through the hands of health care companies and through contaminated fomites and environmental areas2,3 or, less typically, by direct transmission from colonized healthcare providers.4 Standard interventions to prevent the transmitting of MRSA and VRE in healthcare facilities include hands hygiene, the use of barrier precautions in the care of colonized and contaminated patients, the use of dedicated devices and instruments for these patients, and the keeping colonized or infected patients in single rooms or multibed areas or areas reserved for such individuals.7-18 We hypothesized that culture-based dynamic surveillance for MRSA and VRE and the expanded use of barrier precautions, as compared with existing practice, would reduce the incidence of colonization or infection with MRSA or VRE in adult intensive treatment units .
