Table 3 Risk factors for becoming a Staphylococcal aureus carrier three weeks after start of training, multivariable logistic regression models, controlled for season (N = 355)a

From: Neglect of skin wounds and the risk of becoming a Staphylococcus aureus nasal carrier: a cohort study

Risk factors OR (95 % CI) p value
Attitudes toward skin wounds   
 Appropriate care during training 1.0  
 Inappropriate care during training 1.99 (0.97-4.08) 0.06
 No neglect before training 1.0  
 Neglect before training 1.84 (1.09-3.10) 0.02
 No neglect during training 1.0 <0.01
 Neglect during training 2.00 (1.20-3.34)  
 No neglect before and during training 1.0  
 Neglect before or during training 1.68 (0.95-2.96) 0.08
 Neglect before and during training 2.98 (1.48-6.00) <0.01
Practices toward skin wounds   
 No neglect during training 1.0 0.05
 Neglect during training 1.91 (0.99-3.70)  
 No neglect, practice and attitude during training 1.0  
 Neglect, practice or attitude during training 1.86 (1.04-3.34) 0.04
 Neglect, practice and attitude during training 2.40 (1.13-5.12) 0.02
  1. aDue to high correlation between attitudes and practices toward skin wounds, only one risk factor was introduced in each model
