Abstract

During a 4-year period, at least 12 of 40 patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) who were newly colonized with Pseudomonas aeruginosa had acquired it at CF recreation camps, clinics, or rehabilitation centers. After introduction of hygienic precautions at the CF clinic, only a single episode of nosocomial transmission of P. aeruginosa was detected at the CF ward during the subsequent 2 years.
