Authors: Al Shahwani, M.F.
Issue Date: 2005
Language: English
Abstract: A bacteriological distribution analysis of the air was carried out at 8 sites in each of 2 general hospitals in Ibb during the period February-June 2002. Only 3 sites, reception hall, hospital passages and outpatient clinic, gave meaningful values for the distribution of bacteria in the atmospheric air. In these locations, mean values for total plate count, lactose fermenting bacteria, haemolytic bacteria and non-lactose fermenting bacteria were 478.6 colony forming units [cfu]/m3, 24.9 cfu/m3, 6.5 cfu/m3, and 4.8 cfu/m3 respectively. The reception hall had the highest bacterial count, followed by hospital passages and the outpatient clinic. The highest bacterial count was for 08.00, followed by 14.00 and 18.00
