In brief: Not Likely
Not likely, but possible to develop an infection with this pathogen that is commonly found in hospitals and health centers.
You may be more prone if you have had problems with this pathogen in the past.

In brief: Depends on the organ
For most patients pseudomonas infections are rare.
The most common organ transplant recipient to get pseudomonas are lung transplant recipients.
