Multidrug-resistant bacteria in hospitals

The most important multi-drug resistant bacterial strains in hospitals include MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus) ESBL (strains producing extended spectrum beta lactamase) CPE (carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae) VRE (vancomycin resistant enterococci). This article deals primarily with the control of MRSA infections. The same principles may be applied in the management of all infections caused by resistant bacteria in hospital settings.
