MRSA Action UK: International MRSA Testing Week, April 1-7th

International MRSA Testing Week, April 1-7th

MRSA Survivors Network, a global leader in the fight for MRSA awareness, education and prevention launches this week – "International MRSA Testing Week, April 1-7th" a new global campaign with the slogan "Prevention Saves Lives" that draws critical attention for the need of healthcare facilities worldwide to screen high risk patients for MRSA upon admission with continued surveillance and testing – active detection and isolation saves lives.

MRSA Action UK supports the view that prevention is always better than the cure, screening has played a significant role in helping to reduce the numbers of bloodstream infections caused by MRSA in the UK, and hospitals are starting to see success with MSSA.
