2004 - Annual survey of multi-resistant MRSA


Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) national surveillance is based on regular surveys. For these surveys, hospital and community laboratories are requested to refer to ESR all MRSA isolated during a specified period, usually one month. These surveys provide a useful and representative 'snapshot' of the overall epidemiology of MRSA in New Zealand.
