MRSA Resources for Schools

What is MRSA?

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a type of bacteria resistant to many forms of antibiotics. Many people carry it in their nose or on their skin. Most infections affect the skin, but MRSA can also infect other organs. Without treatment, infections can be life threatening, causing severe complications like sepsis or endocarditis.

Because of its resistance to typical antibiotics, it can be difficult to get rid of. Preventing MRSA infections is the easiest way to protect your students and their families.
