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).
