Hospital’s program makes progress against MRSA

The Daily Reflector, April 17, 2008
At the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America's annual meeting in Orlando, FL, the medical director of Infection Control at North Carolina's Pitt County Memorial Hospital said a program is making significant progress in reducing the number of patients bringing MRSA into the hospital. The hospital made a considerable investment in its "search and destroy" approach to MRSA, totaling $950,000 for new technology, kits and employees, according to the report. PCMH has the ability to run 30 MRSA tests at a time in its detection system for up to 150 tests per day.
