Washington: A team of researchers have recommended guidelines that may decrease the infection rate by 71 percent for staph bacteria.The first of the three steps that have been recommended are that a patients nose should be swabbed for two strains of staph Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus ( MSSA) before surgery.Secondly, for the 30 percent patients who have staph naturally in their noses, a anti-bacterial nose ointment should be applied in the days before surgery.Thirdly, at surgery an antibiotic specifically for MRSA should be given to the patients who have the MRSA strain in their noses; for all others, a more general antibiotic should be given.
