CDC: Some hospital super bugs losing their power
from Infectious Disease Special Edition
Overall healthcare–associated (HCA) infections in acute care hospitals have decreased nationally, including a 10 percent decrease in
infections and an 8 percent decrease in
methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus
(MRSA) bacteremia between 2012 and 2013, according to a new report. Although the news is good for patients, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that most
and MRSA infections are community acquired or are diagnosed in healthcare settings other than acute care hospitals.
