stop shedding bacteria
Explanation:
After patients stop shedding bacteria, they can be moved to individual rooms...

I took a class on Virology, and the professor frequently used the phrase "to shed virions" to mean that an infected person is emitting infectious agents (e.g. in mucous, saliva, feces, etc.). The Google results I found for "shedding bacteria" refer to veterinary medicine, not human medicine, but the principle is the same.

"The disease is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium leprae, or Hansen's bacillus. Leprosy patients who are believed to have the disease under control may actually be __shedding bacteria__ that have become resistant to dapsone, Dr. Shepard said. Because of this, he added, the infection's incidence may be increasing at an accelerating rate."

Even though Salmonella food poisoning is a bacterial infection, most practitioners do not treat simple cases with antibiotics. Studies have shown that using antibiotics does not usually reduce the length of time that the patient is ill. Paradoxically, it appears that antibiotics do, however, cause the patient to shed bacteria in their feces for a longer period of time. In order to decrease the length of time that a particular individual is a carrier who can spread the disease, antibiotics are generally not given.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Amy, many thanks for your input! I’m sure you have it right conceptually, in terms of meaning, but I’m just wondering if this would be hitting the correct language register. I'd hate it to sound too informal as I’m translating a pretty formal document :). But if you think it's close enough for government work, I'll shut up and do as you suggest :)


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Anton Konashenok: "Shedding" is definitely the right word. The usual term for the TB pathogen is "bacilli" rather than "bacteria", but it's merely a tradition, as they are indeed a species of bacteria.

  -> Thanks, Anton. I had a fuzzy feeling that I was just missing the mark with "bacteria"--"bacilli" is definitely the word I couldn't put my finger on!
