Are life-threatening infections like MRSA largely confined to hospitals?
Hospital Safety Score answeredMRSA is very common. You can catch it in the community in which you live. You can also catch it in the hospital. One third of us carry around the germ without being affected by it. MRSA is most likely to be spread to an open wound. Individuals that are prone to catch MRSA are young children with open wounds and people who participate in contact sports. In the hospital, patients are in greater danger of contracting MRSA infections as they have a weakened immune system.
