MRSA is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a potentially dangerous type of staph bacteria that is resistant to certain antibiotics and may cause skin and other infections.How to prevent and identify MRSA?
To help prevent the spread of MRSA infections: Wash your hands. Use soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer. Take showers. Shower immediately after exercise. Use barriers. Cover cuts and scrapes with a bandage to keep germs out. Wash your uniform. Follow the laundering directions on your uniform's label.Can MRSA kill a person?
To answer your question, yes it can kill you, but mostly people on either end of the life spectrum, babies and the elderly, the immunosuppressed ... transplant patients, patients with AIDS, etc. So, again don't worry. Given enough antibiotics and time, the mrsa will be a memory.Who should you screen for MRSA?
Specific populations that have close physical contact, such as a sports team, residents of a nursing home, or healthcare workers, may be tested for MRSA carrier status when an outbreak of MRSA is suspected. Occasionally, a person who has been treated for MRSA may be screened to determine whether MRSA are still present.
