In an outbreak setting, we screened 16,296 samples from 3,644 patients by PCR for the presence of blaOXA-48, blaVIM, blaIMP, blaNDM, and blaKPC. The blaOXA-48 gene was found in samples from 43 patients infected with 9 different species of Enterobacteriaceae. Five patients had Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates containing blaVIM. The negative predictive value of screening was 100%, and the positive predictive value was 86%.
