I think the configuration of your facility has a lot to do with infection control. It does not pay to mix MRSA patients with the not infected population. I once read about an orthopedic hospital in England that would not let MRSA through the door. Patients should be separated if they have serious infections. No amount of infection control staff, staff training, or personal protective equipment can defeat patients sharing hand rails, bathrooms, food, and other items around the hospital ward.
