MRSA Policy

Please ensure you are familiar with the screening and eradication protocol which can be found in the Induction folder on the I drive –I:\surgery_&_anaes\ACCU\Policies and Guidelines

All our emergency admissions should be treated as ‘High Risk’ MRSA prophylaxis/treatment status as well as next review date should be completed daily on the pink Care Bundle forms.

Please note that patients allergic to peanuts should NOT be prescribed naseptin – though this is not routinely used for prophylaxis
