Intensive care units (ICU) environment is highly favorable to the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistant pathogens due to an increased cross-transmission risk and to the intensive use of broad spectrum antibiotic agents. Despite the measures adopted worldwide to control antibiotic resistance spread, resistance rates have significantly..
