Case-fatality and risk factors for death in adult patients with nosocomial infection caused by multi-drug resistant organisms in Hungary, 2007-2009

Background: Nosocomial infections (NIs) due to multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) are associated with longer hospital stay, worse outcome and costly therapies. In Hungary, patients with NI caused by a MDRO are notified to the National Nosocomial Surveillance System (NNSS) since 2004. We aimed to determine risk factors for death in patients infected with a MDRO.
