Overview *

MRSA is a bacterial infection that is difficult to treat with antibiotics. While at the hospital, patients and healthcare providers should be extra careful to avoid getting infected. An MRSA infection could be life-threatening.

At the hospital, to protect yourself and your visitors from MRSA, wash your hands often and ask hospital staff if they have washed their hands before touching you.

To avoid spreading infection to themselves and others, healthcare staff should:
- Disinfect hospital surfaces
- Wash their hands
- Use hand sanitizing gel or foam when hand washing is not possible
- Disinfect the skin before inserting catheters or tubes
- Wear a mask, gloves, and eye protection whenever there is a splash danger.

Tell your doctor or healthcare provider if you notice anything that doesn't look normal on your skin, such as red bumps. If you have MRSA or have had it in the past, tell your healthcare provider so he or she can give you the extra care you need.
