We aimed to determine the association between the presence of Acinetobacter baumannii in patient rooms and the carrier status of the occupants. Fifty-six (39%) of 143 rooms with A. baumannii- positive patients had results positive for A. baumannii. Only 49 (10%) of 485 rooms with A. baumannii-negative patients were positive (odds ratio, 5.72[95%confidence interval,3.66-8.96];P <.0001).Clinical and environmental isolates shared pulsed-field gel electrophoresis patterns.
