MRSA In Your Community

  • Targeted Communities
  • According to data from the CDC, despite a decade of successful measures to prevent antibiotic resistant MRSA infections, the number of new cases has not changed much in the past decade.
  • Also, MRSA accounts for more than 80% of skin and soft tissue infections which are mostly seen in outpatient settingsĀ and continues to define the majority of MRSA infections in both adults and children in Atlanta and nationwide.
  • The reason MRSA tends to linger may be due to frequently being in contact with others, or the usual tendency to worsen from simply antibiotic resistant bacteria to an invasive infection.
  • Either reason could be impacted through infection control focused on skin and soft tissue infections due to its frequency in outpatient settings.
