Practise Good Hand hygiene - it is crucial to prevention of MRSA 

Health organizations worldwide all agree that MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) can be passed from one person to another by hand contact. Therefore, one of the most reliable ways of preventing this is by good hand hygiene. We recommend washing the hands with soap and water and/or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

A brief explanation of what MRSA is and does:
MRSA is a type of harmful bacteria that usually shows itself as a skin infection, often in healthy people, in the form of boils or pimples. Sometimes they can lead to severe infection. MRSA is resistant to many antibiotics. The spread of MRSA occurs more frequently in communities such as hospitals, schools and dormitories – anywhere where people are in close confines.

Prevention includes hand-washing with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Other recommendations:

  • Make sure that frequently touched surfaces such as door handles (especially on toilet doors), hand rails, computer keyboards and mice, etc, are regularly cleaned.
  • Do not share personal items such as towels or razors.
