Bacterium Overtook Patients At Brisbane Women’s Hospita

Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH), Sydney struggles with an outbreak of antibiotic-resistant bacterium where nearly 19 patients// in three wards were found with a bacterium called carbapenem resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (CRAB) on their skin.

To prevent the spread, 12 patients from burns unit (people with 40 or 50 per cent burns) were shifted to Sydney hospital and some to Brisbane's Princess Alexandra Hospital.

Patients from both intensive care unit and the infectious disease ward were put under quarantine. It was found nearly 8 out of 10 were carriers. Many diseasers are attacked by a class of diseases including meningitis, pneumonia, surgical wounds and urinary tract infections.

Dr Michael Whitby, Australian Medical Association (AMA) said it takes a bit long time to be freed from the bacterium.

CRAB also made the Brisbane Princess Alexandra Hospital's intensive care unit to be closed. Since the germs survives over 20 years there needs a more tremendous efforts to be undertaken by the health authorities to overcome the spread.
