Controlling Infection: Reducing Hospital-Acquired MRSAWhat are we looking to improve?
Hospital-acquired MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) is the most common health care-associated infection. Its occurrence has risen dramatically across the country over the past 10 years. MRSA infection prolongs length of stay by nine days and increases the risk of both infection at the surgical site and mortality. Through our initiative, we want to decrease the incidence of MRSA infection and its associated risks.
