It is being suspected by health officials an antibiotic-resistant bacterium, which has caused a patient at Royal Alexandra Hospital to die, was brought by a traveler, a new report reveals.
The hospital has tested more than 300 patients with the bacteria and has confirmed seven with the infection as well. And the death of the one is being related to the visit of a woman to the Indian subcontinent.
As per the findings, the lady had got herself injured at the place and had come for a surgery. It has been told that she was not kept under isolation and had spent three days in the hospitals for receiving her treatment.
While not initially, it was discovered later that she had been carrying two different forms of bacteria, one of which was acinetobacter and the other was New Delhi metallobetalactamase, or NDM. The findings had even led many of the hospital's wards closed for new admissions for a couple of days.
The case is being investigated further and the test results are possibly to be out by next week, concludes the report.
