MRSA carriage rates vary widely in nursing homes, study finds
Date:12/1/2010

s. For example, two nursing homes in the study had identical MRSA intake rates of 12 percent, but one of those homes had an overall MRSA carriage among its established residents of 22 percent, while the other had a rate of 42 percent.

The next step, Huang said, is to find out exactly what these facilities are doing to better contain MRSA.

"The social environment in a nursing home has a positive influence on residents, who are encouraged to frequently mingle," Huang said. "We don't want to stymie that residential feel which can be very important to mental and physical health, but we think there's more to be learned about what nursing homes can do to contain MRSA."
