CDC Publishes Steps For Hospitals To Prevent MRSA

The CDC has published safety measures for hospitals to follow to prevent MRSA and/or prevent the spreading of MRSA to other hospital patients.  The guidelines include the placing of MRSA patients in a single room or in a room with another MRSA patient, health care providers are to wear gloves, masks and gowns when treating MRSA patients and take such items off when leaving the patients room, and wash hands with soap and water.  The spread of MRSA is absolutely preventable if proper safety measures are followed.
