researchers at the University hospital of Bonn have discovered that the washing machines, the possible lift of the bacteria. They came to this conclusion after 13 newborn babies in the neonatal unit of the hospital, “heavily influenced, were” against antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

as Of april 2012 till may 2013 for the 13 new-born babies and one young child at a children’s hospital in Germany, and large colonies of one of the persistent bacteria is determined. None of the kids got sick, but it was the discovery of no less concern. The bacteria can result in problems with digestion and breathing, and lead, and is difficult to treat with conventional antibiotics.

There was a study started, and the tracks leading to the washing machine in the unit: for the disease-causing organisms were also in their socks and a hat for the baby, in which machine-washed were the same.

the Same bacteria, the researchers found, back in the spoelvak and deurrubbers of the washing machine. The machine was immediately removed, and not long after, there was barely a trace of the bacteria can be found on the department’s distribution was so over the washed clothes.

The investigators talking in the study, which was published in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology, and of an extraordinary event, especially in a hospital setting. Usually there are washing machines used at high temperatures and is used for washing. Only in the neonatal unit was in a regular washing machine uses. “We have, for the first time, demonstrated that a washing machine in antibiotic-resistant bacteria can be transferred to humans,” said one of the researchers in the field.


the , in which The researchers in their report that their findings make it clear that the design of the washing machines may be re-examined must be provided. Now, in just about each and every household is below the 60-degree wash while nearly all of the bacteria have to be killed if you do it on a 60 degree wash. Especially in households with ill members are advised that a warmer wash or an antiseptic product is to be used.
