Abstract

Real-time PCR testing for blaKPC, blaNDM, blaVIM, blaIMP, and blaCTX-M was performed on rectal swabs obtained from residents of two long-term acute-care facilities. While blaKPC was detected in 69/102 swabs (67.6%), testing for four other targets increased the positivity rate for a broad-spectrum β-lactamase to 73.5% (McNemar's P = 0.03).
