Question Description

Help me study for my Biology class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

Discussion - What’s Eating You?   

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is one of the more prevalent nosocomial infections in healthcare facilities today. Any patient with a compromised immune system or open wound is susceptible to contracting MRSA from medical staff or given family members. Although MRSA is commonly connected to health care facilities, MRSA can be found anywhere.

For your initial post, discuss who you believe to be at the highest risk for MRSA outside the health care environment? Explain. Discuss the common fomites or transmission factors involved as well as preventative measures the public can do to reduce or prevent MRSA infections.

For your reply post, expand on your peer’s ideas by sharing examples from your own experience or readings, suggesting outside resources to support the topic, and/or asking a furthering question to dig deeper into the topic.

Note:

“Expand on your peer’s ideas” needs more than 1 - 2 sentences for an acceptable reply.
