Abstract
Staphylococcus aureus (staph) are bacteria that are commonly found on the skin and mucous membranes (nose) of healthy people. About 1 in 3 people are carriers.

This pamphlet explains how MRSA is spread, screening for MRSA, infection prevention and control (IPAC) guidelines for your care in the hospital and at home, and how long you may have MRSA.
