MRSA Contact Precautions

Why Replace MRSA Contact Precautions (CP)?

Patients in MRSA Contact Precautions: Receive less care, Have worse outcomes, Generate higher facility expenses and Report lower satisfaction scores.

Evidence supports replacing MRSA screen and isolate programs with a Universal Patient Decolonization Program.


Costly and time consuming CP can lead to adverse patient outcomes. Research backs the move away from CP isolation for asymptomatic patients with MRSA colonization or history and the move towards universal patient nasal and skin decolonization to help lower infections and reduce costs.

IP Managers, ICU Managers and DoNs are working with Nozin to help safely replace MRSA screen and isolate protocols with simple, economical, daily universal decolonization.

Ask your Nozin advisor to help you develop a comprehensive summary of the current costs and impact of MRSA CP protocols. Learn about the remarkable patient care improvements and cost savings you could make with a customized Nozin® Universal ICU Decolonization Program.

ICUs are adopting Nozin protocols to:

  • Realize benefits of universal decolonization
  • Safely replace MRSA CP isolation
  • Lower infections, reduce costs
  • Enhance quality of patient care
  • Support antibiotic stewardship
