Americans’ Concern for Skin Infections, Flu, Spreads Across the Countr

Type “schools and staph infections” into a leading Internet search engine, and you’ll find over 360,000 results. And for good reason// .

The latest National Cleaning Survey from The Soap and Detergent Association (SDA) finds Americans are concerned about reports of skin infections, like Staphylococcus aureus, in their children’s schools.

If this bacterium becomes resistant to methicillin, a powerful antibiotic commonly used to fight Staph infections, recovery from the infection becomes much more difficult. This antibiotic resistant strain is known as MRSA, or Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus. In the past, nearly all cases of MRSA were found in hospitalized patients, but now there is an increasing number of infections acquired outside hospitals and in the community.

SDA’s recent survey of 1008 American adults found 74 percent were concerned about ensuring good hand hygiene practices in schools, given many recent reports about infections spreading in scholastic settings.

Separately, 84 percent said they were concerned about ensuring good hand hygiene practices for themselves and their family members at home.

“Surface cleaning, disinfection and proper hand hygiene all play critical roles in helping to prevent the spread of staph infections in schools, homes and health care settings,” said Nancy Bock, SDA Vice President of Education. “People’s levels of awareness of infection risk and prevention methods are promising. To stay their healthiest, people need to convert their awareness into action.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), good hygiene is critical in preventing staph or skin infections:

? Keep your hands clean by washing thoroughly with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

? Keep cuts and scrapes clean and covered with a bandage until healed.

? Avoid contact with other people’s wounds or band
