Surveillance Practice for MRSA

MRSA has emerged as one of the predominant pathogens in healthcare-associated infections. Treatment options for MRSA are limited and less effective than options available for susceptible S. aureus infections and result in higher morbidity and mortality. Hospitals are debating whether to swab every patient upon admission for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or just every patient admitted to the intensive care unit, or just certain patient populations such as those undergoing dialysis or those in pediatric settings. Current estimates suggest that 49-65% of healthcare-associated S. aureus infections reported to NHSN are caused by methicillin- resistant strains.
