Sometimes bacteria can develop the ability to no longer be destroyed by antibiotics. When this happens, the bacteria (organisms) are called 'resistant' to antibiotics, and known as antibiotic-resistant organisms (AROs). This Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) pamphlet explains how AROs are spread, screening for AROs, and why we screen for AROs. The French version of this pamphlet 1859, "Pourquoi faisons-nous le dépistage des organismes antibiorésistants (OA)", is also available.
