MRB screening

MRB screening

The term multiresistant bacteria (MRB) refers to bacteria that have become resistant to multiple antibiotics that are normally effective in treating them (e.g. MRSA, ESBL, ESBL-CARBA, VRE).

All students who have done a work placement within healthcare and/or geriatric care while being on exchange have to undergo MRB Screening. The same applies to all students who have been hospitalised or treated at a polyclinic abroad within the last six months. The screening, which is free of charge for the student, must be performed prior to the start of a work placement within healthcare and/or geriatric care. The student is responsible for setting up an appointment with the Student Healthcare or the local healthcare centre where the student is registered.

All foreign exchange students who are going to do a work placement within healthcare and/or geriatric care during their exchange studies at the School of Health and Welfare also have to undergo MRB Screening. The screening, which is free of charge for the student, must be performed prior to the work placement. The student is responsible for setting up an appointment with the Student Healthcare or the local healthcare centre where the student is registered.
