Abstract

The emergence of cases of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) infections during recent years has given rise to country-specific surveillance and control strategies. The pandemic we are going through has at least helped to remind the importance of applying basic hygiene practices to prevent and control the spread of numerous other pathogens, including multidrug-resistant bacteria including CA-MRSA. However, once identified, patients who are healthy carriers of CA-MRSA may benefit from decolonization according to an established protocol.
