Multidrug resistant bacteria are currently considered as an emergent global disease and a major public health problem. Since the elderly population increases along with people with other disabilities, long term care facilities (LTCFs) is becoming a need. The arising incidence of infections in LTCFs especially from multidrug resistant bacteria is attributed to the transfer of patients from the hospitals to LTCFs and from the LTCFs to the hospitals or the community as well. Recognizing the fact that LTCFs are considered as a reservoir of bacterial resistance, identification of patients at risk and strict implementation of infection control measures must be implemented.
