MRSA Treatment Protocol MRSA Treatment Protocol

MRSA, which is Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, has impacted the athletic and fitness industries for years. It is spread from one person to another through bodily fluid such as sweat and/or from open wounds. For example, if one person is carrying the disease and uses a piece of fitness equipment, and a second person touches the same area with an open wound, the second person can contract the disease. MRSA Treatment of infections typically involves finding medications to which the infections are not resistant. Here is what Mayo Clinic says.

Dermatological conditions carrying Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus

This can be a very mild to serious disease and has resulted in the death of a number of young athletes. MRSA is now impacting the animal world, where we are seeing an increase in cases effecting dogs. Oddly enough, many of these cases have been located in animal rehabilitation facilities. In fact, I worked with a Veterinary Rehabilitation Manager today in helping her create a protocol for her team.

There has also been one documented case with a veterinary hospital employee sued the hospital for contracting MRSA, which she believed was contracted from an infected dog.

If you have any questions and/or require additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact me at your convenience.
