Hospitals, nursing homes and similar establishments are now acknowledged to have a major pathogenic problem : Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
This represents a significant and life threatening cause of hospital acquired infection, and the hospitals act as a reservoir for this pathogen.
Staphylococcus aureus is a pathogen found in the warm and moist areas of the body. In healthy people it causes little harm, but can cause severe and dangerous infections in patients who have had surgery, or who are suffering from boils, septicaemia or pneumonia.
Staphylococcus aureus is a thick walled bacterium, with the ability to develop resistance to antibiotics.
The most resistant strain of this bacteria encountered is resistant to the powerful antibiotic, methycillin and is therefore known as Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, generally abbreviated to "MRSA".
New antibiotics were developed to overcome this trend, but S.aureus again developed resistance to these new antibiotics, with potentially disastrous consequences for patients from wound infection.
