Difference in incidence and transmission mode of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus among surgery, orthopedics, and pediatrics wards: a prospective study at a university hospital.


The incidence and circumstances of colonization by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus were prospectively investigated. Among 404 patients, 15 (3.7%) were carriers on admission, and 43 (10.6%) became colonized, mainly after surgical operation. A different mode of transmission was suggested in each ward.
