Strains of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) have emerged as important pathogens over the last 20 years,
affecting primarily hospitalized patients.1,2
Risk factors associated with acquiring MRSA in hospitals include prolonged
hospitalization, receiving care in an intensive care unit, preceding antimicrobial
therapy, surgical procedures, and proximity to another patient known to be
colonized or infected with MRSA.1,2
Typically, hospital-acquired strains of MRSA are multidrug resistant, ie,
resistant to β-lactam agents, to erythromycin and clindamycin, and frequently
to gentamicin and ciprofloxacin.2
