One common and dangerous hospital-acquired infection is methicillin resistant
Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). MRSA is caused by improper infection control
like the use of unclean instruments, the failure to wash hands and tools,
and the failure to properly protect surgical wounds during and after surgery.
MRSA infections and injuries can worsen considerably when not detected
and treated, and can lead to amputation,
wrongful death and other injuries.
