- Brief summaryThe study aim is to investigate the spread of Staphylococcus aureus in a Long Term Care facility. This study will reveal carriage and incidence of colonization with Staphylococcus aureus among Health care workers and Nursing Home Residents, which illustrates spread and transmission of this pathogen. Moreover, the role of social networks and the role of the hands in transmission of Staphylococcus aureus will be clearer. Analyzing the amount and intensity of social contacts among nursing home residents and health care workers, the incidence of Staphylococcus Aureus and observing hand hygiene practices will yield results that contribute to the generation of novel prevention strategies.
