  1. Staff carriage of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (EMRSA 15) and the home environment : a case report.

    Article - En anglais

    A case of refractory carriage of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by a nurse is described.

    The nurse's home environment was widely contaminated with MRSA and two family members acquired the organism.

    Relapse of carriage after routine anti-staphylococcal measures and three negative sets of screening specimens resulted in a hospital outbreak involving three patients.

    The problem was finally terminated after a co-ordinated commercial cleaning of the house, thermal disinfection of all linen and replacement of some soft furnishings.
