Biofilm in sink drains … what are the facts?

62% of untreated drains

are contaminated by multi-resistant bacteria.
(Clin. Microbiol. Infect., 2021, Valentin et al.)

5 patients were infected

in an intensive care unit from a Swedish hospital within a period of seven months. The source of the outbreak was the sink drain hosting antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
(J. Hosp. Infection, 2012, Starlander et al.)

Droplets are dispersed

and attain up to 1,50 meters away departing from the sink drain.
(Am J Infect Control., 2022, Ofstead et al.)

A contaminated sink

results in the spread of micro-organisms towards nursing staff and patients.
(Infect. Control Hosp. Epidemiol, 2019, Hajar et al.)

The threat of carbapenemase-producting organisms (CPO)

Within the seemingly serene environment of intensive care units (ICU) lies a hidden battlefield, as this study brings to light a relentless and dangerous outbreak of carbapenemase-producing organisms (CPO), unexpectedly emanating from an item as ubiquitous as the sink drain. Merging meticulous investigation with the forefront of scientific discovery, the researchers disclose how these elusive bacteria circumvent the most rigorous disinfection measures, posing a grave risk to patient safety. This account not only documents an extended conflict with an infinitesimal adversary but also introduces novel solutions, urging a reevaluation of our strategies for hospital cleanliness and infection prevention amidst the critical pressures of an ICU environment.
