In brief: Yes and no

Pseudomonas can be transmitted differently - contact exposure, airborne.
Also, it may live on some of us without causing any disease, but when local immunity diminishes, it may start causing a problem. Skin infections caused by pseudomonas mandate usual hygiene measures such as hand washing, using protective wear, disposal of infected materials etc. But not 100% guarantee of protection.

In brief: Yes and No

Depends where.
If you step on a nail and it goes through your shoe the wound is prone to psuedomonas aeruginosa because it is in the glue of your shoe. You can't help that. If you are a girl, wiping from from to back can prevent the bacteria in a uti.
