    Article - En anglais

    An outbreak of Staphylococcus aureus infections occurred following discontinuation of antiseptic cord care on a neonatal unit.

    Multiple phage types were involved.

    The most common site of infection was the umbilicus, In addition, there were two clusters of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) infection and one due to Streptococcus pyogenes.

    The outbreak was rapidly controlled by the reintroduction of hexachlorophane powder for cord care.
