dc.descriptionThe emergence, world wide; of multiple antibiotic resistant bacteria over the last twenty years, has become one of Ihe most serious threats to the control and successful treatment of infection. The most important causative factors identified are, selection of resistant micro-organisms by over use of antibiotics, and spread of these organisms in places like hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities. The commonest antibiotic resistant bacteria encountered in Irish hospitals is Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). This is capable of causing serious infection in certain hospitalised patients, particularly surgical patients. Treatment of such infections require the use of potentially toxic and very expensive antibiotics. Hospitals throughout the country have devoted a large amount of time, effort, and resources to controllillg the spread of MRSA amongst patients and staff in order to prevent infection.en_GB
