The low rate of colonization with multi drug resistant (MDR) bacteria confirms that nursing home residency is not a risk factor for MDR pneumonia in Germany. For individual risk assessment in this susceptible population, immobility and malnutrition should be considered as signs of functional impairment as well as comorbidity.
