Management of Multidrug-Resistant Organisms In Health Care Settings
Description of Resource:
Multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs), including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), and certain gram-negative bacilli, have important infection control implications that either have not been addressed or received only limited consideration in previous isolation guidelines. Increasing experience with these organisms is improving understanding of the routes of transmission and effective preventive measures. The guideline provides recommendations for the implementation of strategies and practices to prevent the transmission of MRSA, VRE, and other MDROs.
