AbstractAn outbreak of Salmonella wandsworth infection in a paediatric ward is described. During extensive environmental swabbing the organism was detected only on rectal thermometers. The thermometers were considered to have caused infection in seven infants by the rectal route, due to inappropriate disinfection and to occasional breakdown of the 'one thermometer-one patient' routine. Retrograde infection with Salm. wandsworth was demonstrated in mice by artificial per rectum inoculation.
