Identification and eradication of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus colonization in the neonatal intensive care unit: results of a national survey.

We surveyed members of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America to assess current practice with regard to identifying and eradicating methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) colonization in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Evidence-based prevention strategies for MRSA transmission and infection are needed.
