Because mupirocin-resistant strains may emerge and because it is unusual to eradicate MRSA when multiple body sites are colonized, do not use topical mupirocin routinely for Ncidodd decolonization of patients as a component of MRSA control programs in any healthcare setting.

Prevent contamination of clothing and skin during the process of removing PPE see Figure.

See Table 3, Tier 1. Monitor susceptibility to detect emergence of ehqp to the decolonizing agent. Implement systems to designate patients known to be colonized or gog with a targeted MDRO and to notify receiving healthcare facilities and personnel prior to transfer of such patients within or between facilities.

Review periodically information on community or regional trends in the incidence and prevalence of epidemiologically-important organisms e. Ensure that patients are physically separated i.

Monitor trends in the incidence of target MDROs in the facility over time using appropriate statistical methods to determine whether MDRO rates are decreasing and whether additional interventions are needed. Use EPA-registered disinfectants that have microbiocidal i. Administrative Measures Recommendation Category V. Provide administrative support, including fiscal and human resources for maintaining infection control programs.


Include multi-use electronic equipment in policies and procedures for preventing contamination and for cleaning and disinfection, especially those items that are used by patients, those used during delivery of patient care, and mobile devices that are moved in and out of patient rooms frequently e.

Develop, implement, and monitor action plans to correct system failures. In addition, include the following sites according to target MDROs:.

Edit [February ] Edit: Category II Suggested for implementation and supported by suggestive clinical or epidemiologic studies or a theoretical rationale. No recommendation for placing patients with other medical conditions that are associated with increased risk for environmental fungal infections e.

See updates to this guideline:. Practices for which insufficient evidence or no consensus regarding efficacy exists. Increase the frequency of compiling and monitoring antimicrobial susceptibility summary reports for a targeted MDRO as indicated by an increase in incidence of infection or colonization with that MDRO.


Do not wear the same pair of gloves for the care of more than one patient. The environmental recommendations in these guidelines may be applied to patients with other infections that require Airborne Precautions. Recommend on Facebook Tweet Share Compartir. Consult with a microbiologist for appropriate testing for mupirocin resistance, since standards have not been established.

In long-term care and other residential settingsmake decisions regarding patient placement on a case-by-case basis after considering infection risks to other patients in the room and available alternatives.

Neither the effectiveness of individual components nor that of specific combinations of control measures has been assessed in controlled trials.

Provide clinicians with antimicrobial susceptibility reports and analysis of current trends, updated at least annually, to guide antimicrobial prescribing practices.

In ambulatory settingsplace contaminated reusable noncritical patient-care equipment in a plastic bag for transport to a soiled utility area for reprocessing. Category IB Strongly recommended for implementation and supported by some experimental, clinical, or epidemiologic studies and a strong theoretical rationale.

Evaluate healthcare system factors for their role in creating or perpetuating transmission of MDROs, including:
