MRSA is a strain of S. aureus, so can any of us have it on our skin? Or is the one that colonizes us different than the MRSA version and if so, how do people come in contact with it? Or is all Staph resistant to Methycillin (sp?) and so if you end up with a staph infection you're doomed to MRSA?<br><br>
I am so confused and a little girl we knew just died from a MRSA infection after developing pneumonia and having to go to the hospital. I thought it was a nosocomial infection, but now I'm not so sure that I know my butt from a hole in the ground. Can someone set me straight?
