Multi-drug resistant organisms (MDRO) are common bacteria (germ) that have developed resistance to multiple types of antibiotics. These bacteria are present on the body of many people, including on the skin, in the nose or other moist areas of the body and in secretions. Antibiotic resistance often occurs following frequent antibiotic use or frequent exposure to a healthcare setting. For most healthy people these bacteria don t cause a problem.
