Research Proposal on MRSA Infections in Hospital
Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) causes significant morbidity and mortality and is a costly public health issue (Goetghebeur, Landry, Han and Vicente, 2007). A large number of patients with MRSA in the hospital are admitted with nasal carriage from community acquired colonization. A national assessment of carriage of S aureus by Mainous, Hueston, Everett & Diaz (2006) indicates that about one-third of the United States population is currently colonized by this organism. With such a high degree of colonization in the general population there is the need to determine if this is associated with the high rates of nosocomial infections with MRSA. This is...
