Personal injury attorney Gloria Seidule has been fighting for her clients’ rights for over 25 years and has vast experience with MRSA cases.

What is MRSA?

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a highly contagious staph infection that is resistant to most antibiotics.  Untreated, it may result in severe disability or death. Once an individual cont

racts MRSA, they will always be colonized, or a carrier of the bacteria. It can lie dormant in the body and be activated with subsequent procedures or trauma.

The MRSA infection originated in hospitals and began affecting the public due to doctors discharging highly contagious patients with active infections. Community Acquired MRSA of the skin has become very common because the germ is able to live on surfaces for long periods of time. If an open area of skin touches an infected surface, the skin can in turn become infected. These types of skin infections are seen most commonly found in hospitals, jails, nursing homes and schools. Proper sanitary procedures in these facilities are the only way to prevent the spread of MRSA.

Is MRSA Preventable?

Yes!  Many hospitals in the world have eliminated or significantly reduced hospital acquired infections. Infections are not an acceptable risk of hospitalization. Unfortunately, the infection is often worse than the original reason for hospitalization.
