Abstract

The prevalence of community-acquired meticillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (ca-MRSA) as an important cause of hand infections has gained much recognition. The clinical impact of this is less well documented in the United Kingdom. This study looks at the incidence of hand infections in an urban Scottish teaching hospital over a 12 month period.
