Abstract

An investigation has been carried out on healthy carriers of "positive Staphylococcus coagulase" and "occasional pathogenic" strains among kitchen, canteen and dispensary staff in the IVth Geriatric Division and First Aid Clinic of the Bologna "M. Malpighi" Hospital. All stains of "positive Staphylococcus coagulase" and "occasional pathogens" considered (Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Citrobacter) were put through antibiotic and chemotherapeutic sensitivity tests. The results are reported in detail.
