Study Start Date: October 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
rehabilitation center's hospitalized patients

Detailed Description:

All patients admitted to the department will be examined on admission, two weeks latter and monthly by obtaining nares and perirectal cultures. These cultures will be processed for detection the target organisms. This activity is part of the good medical practice and is performed on routine basis in various hospital units
