Risk Factors for Persistent MRSA Colonization in Children with Multiple Intensive Care Unit AdmissionsInfection Control and Hospital Epidemiology (2013)
AbstractWe studied methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)-colonized children with multiple intensive care unit (ICU) admissions to assess the persistence of MRSA colonization. Our data found that children with more than 1 year between ICU admissions had a higher prevalence of MRSA colonization than the overall ICU population, which supports empirical contact precautions for children with previous MRSA colonization.
