MRSA Precautions

MRSA Precautions

Taking precautions in known MRSA environments worth it  From football locker rooms to ALF patient rooms, there is a surge in the number of otherwise healthy people developing Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, better known as MRSA.  The dreaded MRSA is a difficult- to-treat, multi-drug-resistant staph infection.
One way to protect yourself if your school or your mother’s nursing home is having an outbreak is to practice good hand-washing, and to use Mupirocin (Bactroban), anintranasal prescription topical antibiotic that kills MRSA.
