Özet

Aim: A high rate (48.6%) of extended spectrum beta-lactamase production among Klebsiella pneumoniae (ESBL-KP) clinical isolates in the paediatric wards of our hospital prompted the introduction of enhanced infection control measures, and after the implementation of these measures, we instituted a prospective surveillance programme, with a nested case-control study to determine the risk factors for rectal colonisation by ESBL-KP.
