About MRSADrug-resistant, potentially deadly MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infections are a growing problem in healthcare facilities around the world. Patients in hospitals are at increased risk for MRSA infection, which can be spread by medical personnel, medical instruments, or from exposure to bacteria on furniture or other surfaces. The routine invasive medical procedures performed in hospitals also create openings for MRSA to enter the bloodstream. The incidence of MRSA infections has been rising, and some experts estimate that over 60% of hospital-acquired S. aureus infections are now antibiotic-resistant. MRSA infections lead to increased disability and death among hospital patients, and also generate high costs for healthcare providers and for the healthcare system as a whole.
