Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, or MRSA, infection is caused by a strain of staph bacteria that's become resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections. In this SafetyBytes® module, we’ll review common treatments for MRSA.
Antibiotic therapy is still the mainstay of medical care for MRSA, but antibiotic therapy is complicated by MRSA's antibiotic resistance. Consequently, laboratory determination of MRSA antibiotic resistance and susceptibility is important in establishing effective antibiotic treatment.
