Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) have been endemic in Irish hospitals for several decades and remain a significant clinical issue. A recent collaborative study by microbiologists at the Dublin Dental University Hospital (DDUH), the Irish National MRSA Reference Laboratory at St. James’s Hospital Dublin, and the Department of Clinical Microbiology, Beaumont Hospital Dublin used whole-genome sequencing to investigate transmission of MRSA among patients, healthcare workers (HCWs) and the environment in a large acute hospital over a two-year period. Numerous potential MRSA transmission events were identified in the absence of infection outbreaks. A recently published follow up study on methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) recovered during the same period as the MRSA study has just been published on-line by the researchers. MSSA are more diverse and more common than MRSA, and whereas infections caused by MSSA are easier to treat than infections caused by MRSA, MSSA can be just as virulent as MRSA and can cause serious infections.
