BACKGROUND In this study, we aimed to determine the nasal carriage rate of Staphylococcus aureus and risk factors in hemodialysis (HD) patients. METHODS One hundred eighty-four HD patients were evaluated. A second sample was taken from the subjects, the wipe samples of whom were isolated as S. aureus.
