Wood materials for limiting the bacterial reservoir on surfaces in hospitals: would it be worthwhile to go further?

Abstract : Aim: To assess the activity of Quercus petraea (oak) on five bacterial species/genus frequently involved in hospital-acquired infections for evaluating the interest of going further in exploring the possibilities of using untreated wood as a material in the hospital setting. Materials & methods: We studied the activity of Q. petraea by the disk diffusion method. Results: Q. petraea was active on Staphylococcus aureus and Acinetobacter coalcoaceticus-baumannii complex, two bacterial species particularly resistant in the hospital environment, independently from their resistance to antibiotics, and was slightly active on Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Concurrently, Q. petraea was not active on Enterococci and Escherichia coli. Conclusion: Overall, untreated wood material presented antimicrobial properties that could have an impact on the cross-transmission of certain bacterial species in healthcare settings.
