PREVENTING MRSA IN HEALTH CLUBS, GYMS AND SCHOOLS
- MRSA is a type of staph (Staphylococcus aureus) infection. Staph is a common bacterium found on the skin of many healthy individuals. MRSA (or Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) has developed a resistance to typical antibiotic treatments, however can be treated by your health provider with proper treatment and specialty antibiobics.
- There are two types of MRSA. HA-MRSA is hospital acquired MRSA, occurring most frequently among persons in hospitals and healthcare facilities who have weakened immune systems. The other type is community acquired, or CA-MRSA.
- CA-MRSA is spread from person to person by contact. That’s why sports related transmission of MRSA is so common. It’s important for athletes in particular to practice good hygiene, cover open cuts or scrapes, and not share equipment.
- CA-MRSA can also be spread by contacting a surface that harbors the MRSA bacteria.
