The purpose of this study is to determine the better approach between the currently procedure and a reinforced strategy to control and prevent infections due to MRSA in the institutionalized population of nursing homes in Canton of Vaud, Switzerland.
MRSA carriage among nursing homes residents of Canton Vaud, Switzerland, is increasing, despite use of standard precautions. Recommendation to prevent MRSA transmission in long term care facilities are lacking.
We aim to reinforce the current infection control strategy by general MRSA screening of institutionalised residents and decolonisation of MRSA carriers.
Because the uncertainties in the impact of this reinforced strategy, we aim to compare this action to the policy actually applied.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

The goal of this study is to further the investigators' understanding of community acquired methicillin-resistant Staph Aureus (CA-MRSA) and treatment of it by developing real-world sustai...
This study aims to examine features of MRSA that are associated with chronic MRSA infection and bacterial persistence despite IV antibiotic therapy. Subjects are asked to expectorate sputu...
Nosocomial infections is a major problem in intensive care units due to both growing incidence and pathogens implicated which become increasingly resistant to antibiotics. According to the...
One hundred new residents will be recruited prior to the start of residency and followed prospectively for a year. Monthly nasal swabs will be performed to identify colonization with methi...
1.To assess whether the Elution swab (ESwab) is superior to Amies transport swabs for the detection of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin Resistant Enterococ...
Nosocomial infections caused by methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and emergence of vancomycin resistant S. aureus (VRSA) have led to great concern in healthcare settings worldwide.
We conducted a retrospective study based on composite endpoints for treatment failure to evaluate the effect of pharmacist-led VCM initial dose planning for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus...
Domestic animals can serve as reservoirs for drug resistant S. aureus and may lead to the emergence of multidrug resistant human S. aureus.
Methicillin resistant staphylocci including Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and S. pseudintermedius (MRSP) pose threats to animal and human health worldwide. Veterinary staffs and pets may play a role in...
Vancomycin is one of the most widely used antibiotics for the treatment of serious infectious caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). However, reduced susceptibility of S. aureus...
A strain of Staphylococcus aureus that is non-susceptible to the action of METHICILLIN. The mechanism of resistance usually involves modification of normal or the presence of acquired PENICILLIN BINDING PROTEINS.
A species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, but containing different esterases. The subspecies Staphylococcus hominis novobiosepticus is highly virulent and novobiocin resistant.
A 25-kDa peptidase produced by Staphylococcus simulans which cleaves a glycine-glcyine bond unique to an inter-peptide cross-bridge of the STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS cell wall. EC 18.104.22.168.
Pneumonia caused by infections with bacteria of the genus STAPHYLOCOCCUS, usually with STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS.
A COAGULASE-negative species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS found on the skin and MUCOUS MEMBRANE of warm-blooded animals. Similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS and STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, it is a nosocomial pathogen in NICU settings. Subspecies include generally antibiotic susceptible and BIOFILM negative capitis and antibiotic resistant and biofilm positive urealyticus isolates.

MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a family of bacteria with resistance to one or more major antibiotics. There are currently 17 different strains of MRSA. Two particular strains, EMRSA15 and EMRSA16 account for 96% of MRSA blood...
