Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a known cause of serious hospital-acquired infections. This study analyzed the effect of various hospital organizational factors on the incidence of MRSA bloodstream infections. The investigators concluded that hand hygiene, intensive general cleaning efforts, infection control training, and a safety culture conducive to error reporting are the organizational factors associated with significant decreases in MRSA infections.
