MRSA: Mrsa is a form of staphylococcus bacteria that is resistant to a specific group of antibiotics. It is prevalent in all settings, not only the nursing home. Many people are colonized with the bacteria; this does not mean they are infected. Make sure that you do your best to wash your hands as frequently as possible.
