Executive Brief on Nasal Decolonization

Nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus is reported in 30% of the population, and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in 3% to 5% percent of the population.

This can help address the dilemma of contact precautions (CP) where patients remain colonized.
