Harmless bacteria that people carry on their skin, has now suddenly becomes a dangerous predator immune to antibiotics, chemical wash and antiseptic is threatening us all.
Swine flu is here and is likely to get worse. We know secoundary bacterial infection associated with Swine flu kills. Based on reserch, we know children who died last year due to common flu infection were due to co-infection with MRSA.
"Hospital organization, specialty mix and MRSA" published (www.dh.gov.uk/publications) their finding and makes it clear high bed occupancy rates, temporary staff or low cleanliness scores no longer have significantly higher MRSA rates.
Inadequate hand hygiene by healthcare workers and in-effective antiseptics and dis-infectanta are contributing to spread. "Clean your hands campaign" may have loosened the previously observed link between measured environmental cleanliness and MRSA.
Staphylococcus bacteria commonly carried on the skin around 30% of the general population. MRSA bacteria at any one time and spread through people having close contact with infected or colonised people. People carrying MRSA on their skin can inadvertently become infected through the spread of those bacteria into their body or introduced (during procedures) into the bloodstream resulting in "Bacteraemia" and death.
MRSA enters a normally sterile blood stream through intravenous cannulae, catheter or a local site (cuts, puncture sites, wounds) of infection. MRSA is almost always spread through physical contact, rather than through air or water. To reduce the rate further, it would be sensible to stop using ported cannulae (banned in USA due to high infection rate) and reduce the number of attempts taken to introduce cannulae. Multiple puncture sites will allow the MRSA to colonize and enter blood circulation resulting in bacteraemia and death.
