Abstract

MENDEZ RODRIGUEZ, IVÁN ALBERTO et al. MICROORGANISMS IN STETHOSCOPES, HANDS,ORAL AND NASAL CAVITY FROM STUDENTS IN A SCHOOL OF MEDICINE. rev.fac.med [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.1, pp.90-100. ISSN 0121-5256.

The academic training of medical students involves interaction with patients, where microorganisms in contact with different surfaces can be acquired and transmitted with the consequent risk to the community hospital.This is a quantitative descriptive study on students of medicine (n = 155) with clinic rotations of 3 weeks, swabs were taking from the nose, mouth, hands and stethoscope, following by gram and blood agar cultures, incubation 24 hours at 37° C and 5% CO2, final Identification was performed by gram, biotyping tests and antibiotic susceptibility by kirbybauer technique.The findings presented here show high frequency of bacterial pathogens in source isolation, to be relevant the presence of Staphylococcus aureus in 41.7% and resistan cetoantibiotics both grampositive andgramnegative, therefore is to consider the implementation of strategies to minimize the movement of these microorganisms in the hospital environment.The objective of this study is to establish the frequency of microorganisms isolated from students at a medical school.
