Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection in geriatric hospital--management for infected decubital ulcer

, : Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection in geriatric hospital--management for infected decubital ulcer. Nihon Rinsho. Japanese Journal of Clinical Medicine 50(5): 1157-1162

Wide spread of MRSA infection in geriatric hospitals indicated two important problems which must be resolved. One is how we can eradicate MRSA in the elderly, and the other is how we can control cross infections of MRSA within the hospital. The presence of infected decubital ulcers in the elderly make it difficult to answer these problems. Usually, MRSA and Pseudomonas aeruginosa which is isolated from decubital ulcers act as colonizers on the surface of granulated wounds but do not contribute to clinical symptoms. However, these colonizers can be the source of cross infection toward other debilitated patients. The actual management for decubital ulcer infected by MRSA are discussed from the above viewpoints.
