Download Format(s) :
MP3,SAV
$20.00


  • Richard B. (Tom) Thomson, Jr., PhD, D(ABMM), Evanston Hospital-Northshore University Health System
  • Evanston Hospital has used universal admission screening for MRSA since August 2005. Screening by relating PCR provided results in an average of 15 hours. MRSA colonized patients were isolated and decolonized with topical mupirocin. Nosocomial MRSA disease was reduced by 75%. The screening program cost approximately $750,000 per year. Reductions in nosocomial blood stream and respiratory infections alone resulted in savings greater than $750,000.
