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. Most staph bacteria are easily treated with antibiotics if they cause an infection.

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. Most staph bacteria are easily treated with antibiotics if they cause an infection. Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a type of staph infection that is resistant to the antibiotics that are usually used to treat staph infections. 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. The French version of this pamphlet 1858, "SARM (Staphylococcus aureus résistant à la méthicilline)", is also available.

Sometimes bacteria can develop the ability to no longer be destroyed by antibiotics. When this happens, the bacteria (organisms) are called 'resistant' to antibiotics, and known as antibiotic-resistant organisms (AROs). This Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) pamphlet explains how AROs are spread, screening for AROs, and why we screen for AROs. The French version of this pamphlet 1859, "Pourquoi faisons-nous le dépistage des organismes antibiorésistants (OA)", is also available.

Le Staphylococcus aureus résistant à la méthicilline (SARM) est une infection à un staphylocoque résistant aux antibiotiques habituellement utilisés pour traiter les infections staphylococciques.
