The environments of hospital pharmacies and the preparations made in these pharmacies were examined for Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This organism was widely distributed in the pharmacies and was isolated from 9% of preparations. In 11 instances strains of Ps aeruginosa from the preparations bore a close resemblance to strains previously found in the pharmacy environments.
