Abstract

This pamphlet is a French translation of "Why We Screen for Antibiotic-resistant Organisms (AROs)" pamphlet 1765. 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.

Routine practices are the minimum (least) steps taken to prevent and control infections while caring for all patients at all times. Additional precautions (such as contact, droplet or airborne precautions) are sometimes needed to keep germs from spreading from one patient to another.

Abstract
Les fournisseurs de soins de santé travaillent fort pour prévenir la propagation des microbes d’une personne à l’autre. Cela est important parce que certains microbes peuvent causer des infections. Les « pratiques de base » sont les mesures minimales prises en tout temps pour prévenir et contrôler les infections dans la prestation des soins aux patients. Des « précautions supplémentaires » (comme les précautions contre la transmission par contact, par gouttelettes ou par voie aérienne) sont parfois requises pour empêcher les microbes de se propager d’un patient à un autre. La présente brochure explique en quoi consistent les pratiques de base et les précautions supplémentaires.
