Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen commonly found in hospital water systems. Antibiotic resistant, it can be responsible for respiratory, blood, heart, gastrointestinal, and urinary tract infections in immunocompromised patients. Detecting a P. aeruginosa contamination quickly is the key to an effective response.
More than 350 cases of Legionnaires’ disease cases were confirmed in England and Wales in 2016. Routine testing of the facility's water for Legionella pneumophila is essential for protecting patients and ensuring an effective Water Management Plan.
