Table 4 Risk assessment for the sampling sites. Risk group A: no increased risk (including old people and people with PPI intake); Risk group B: people with increased risk (skin diseases, open wounds, antibiotic therapy and/or devices); Risk group C: people under high risk (immunosuppression or immunodeficiency). Water type 1: “unburdened bathing water” (0/4 positive samples); type 2: “possibly burdened bathing water with hints of burden” (1–2/4 positive samples); type 3: “burdened bathing water” (3–4/4 positive samples). Light grey cells: no health impact expected; Medium grey cells: health impact cannot be excluded, bathing as case-by-case decision after medical consultation; Dark grey cells: bathing not recommended due to possible health impact. +: positive findings. 1: Antibiotic residue, 2: ARB, 3: resistance genes
