Bad Bugs Arising: A look at MRSA on the rise
Recent reports confirm that skin and other infections with bacteria like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA are on the rise. In this podcast, I interview two leaders at Nationwide Children’s Hospital who see this problem first hand each and every day. Dennis Cunningham, MD is a pediatric infectious disease specialist and the medical director for epidemiology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Daniel Cohen, MD is a clinical associate professor and an emergency medicine specialist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. These MRSA experts offer insites into how to recognize and manage MRSA infections in children and families. They also provide an update regarding the quality improvement efforts to reduce MRSA infections both in and out of the hospital.
