The Facts About MRSAStreaming Video - 2005
How much of the media coverage of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus-a superbug considered deadly, out of control, and incurable-is misleading or even flat-out wrong? This program, designed to assist doctors and nurses in identifying and treating patients with MRSA, provides essential information on how the pathogen is transmitted, who is most highly at risk, and treatment with intravenous antibiotics such as vancomycin and teicoplanin. Infection-control protocols for hospitals, nursing and residential facilities, and patients' homes are described. Phage-typing to identify strains of S. aureus is also demonstrated.
