Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus MRSA Infection Control Program


Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a type of staph bacteria that is resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics. People can get MRSA infections from the community or in healthcare facilities. But patients in healthcare facilities are susceptible to MRSA because they often undergo surgery or other procedures that make it easier for MRSA to get into the body.

This program provides a review of history, resistance, virulence, colonization vs infection, transmission, reservoirs, and control.
