Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus infection is one of the most common sources of infections that occur in patients following hospitalization. The infection typically results from poor infection control and MRSA bacterium spreads between patients and healthcare staff. Methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus infection can be prevented through the consistent use of Standard Precautions such as handwashing, the use of protective gloves, gowns, as well as proper handling and disposal of body fluids. All members of the health team are required to be educated on the transmission and prevention of methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus to reduce the chance of spread of this pathogen.
