methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) infections in hospitalized patients

New guidelines will clarify the treatment of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) infections in hospitalized patients.

Choose treatments based on the infection site, patient's age, antibiotic sensitivities, patient tolerance, cost, etc.

Keep in mind the newer drugs (daptomycin, linezolid, telavancin) cost about $200 per day...ten times more than the older ones (clindamycin, TMP/SMX, vancomycin).
