The Dissemination of Staph Infections in Hospitals
According to a study done by Thomas Obadia and colleagues, wireless sensors recording human interactions explain the transmission of MRSA in hospitals. The study involved analyzing 85,025 daily interactions measured every 30 seconds between 590 participants over a four-month period. The results indicate that the study of individuals contact may help identify increased risk of transmission situations and reduce the burden of nosocomial S. aureus transmission.
