Abstract

Carriage duration of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) is uncertain. We followed 21 CPE carriers over one year. Mean carriage duration was 86 (95%CrI= [60, 122]) days, with 98.5% (95%CrI= [95.0, 99.8]) probability of decolonization in one year. Antibiotic consumption was associated with prolonged carriage. CPE-carriers' status should be reviewed yearly.
