Microbial patterns in the operating room and outpatient room (Pedodontic Room) Dental and Oral Hospital Hasanuddin University
Objective: Therefore, researchers want to conduct research to identify microorganisms in the operating room and outpatient room (pedodontic room) of the Dental and Oral Hospital of Hasanuddin University. Material and Methods: This research uses cross sectional (transversal) design. Total sample is two samples, one sample for outpatient room (pedodontic room) and one sample for the operating room. Sampling using MAS (Microbiological Air Sampler). Samples were calculated using a colony counter then performed gram staining and biochemical tests. Data analysis using univariate analysis. Results: Airborne bacteria in Pedodontic room is 224 CFU/m3 and in the operating room obtained an average of 686 CFU/m3 airborne bacteria. Types of dominant bacteria in the operating room are Sphingomonas paucimobilis, Aeromonas salmonicida, and Alloiococcus otitis, while in the pedodontic room Sphingomonas paucimobilis, Staphylococcus cohnii ssp urealyticus, and Staphylococcus aureus. Conclusion: Airborne in the operating room of Dental and Oral Hospital of Hasanuddin University is still contaminated with organism and has not met the minimum standard of bacteria, while the air in the pedodontic room is good and in accordance with the prevailing standards.
