Abstract

Hospitals across the United States and around the world are fighting the escalation of drug-resistant infections. In response to this costly and life-threatening problem, facilities are engaging in vigorous programs to prevent its occurrence and spread. This article presents one hospital's fight against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus by implementing a facility-wide program aimed at changing and standardizing the culture within the hospital.
