BACKGROUND The emergence of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) has been well described; however, few studies have reviewed long-term hospital-wide data. METHODS This retrospective study of adult patients used the first culture per patient per visit positive for MRSA for 1996 to 2005.
