MRSA Washes Up on West Coast Beaches

Washington – Dangerous MRSA has been found in sand and water at five public beaches for the first time.  MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, is a type of staph infection that is resistant to certain types of antibiotics.  It was once rarely seen outside of hospitals, but is now becoming more prevalent in every day society.

MRSA can cause serious skin infections and is spread mostly from person to person through skin contact.  However, environmental sources may be a new way for it to spread.

Marilyn Roberts, a microbiologist at the University of Washington in Seattle states that “the fact that we found these organisms suggests that the level is much higher than we had thought.”
