Hospital and Health Clinic MRSA Cleanup Services
Fast and Confidential Cleanup and Disinfection
In medical or healthcare settings, such as hospitals or nursing homes, MRSA can cause life-threatening problems such as bloodstream infections, pneumonia and surgical wound infections.
Recent outbreaks of infectious diseases are well-documented in the media. For biohazard emergencies, we provide cleaning, disinfection and prevention for MRSA, Swine Flu, C-Diff, and Staph infection.
Some staph bacteria are resistant to certain antibiotics. Staphylococcus aureus , often referred to as “staph,” can commonly be found on the skin or inside the nose of healthy people. The 25% to 30% of the population that carries staph without causing illness are known as “carriers” or “colonized”. These biohazards can be deadly to patients, medical staff or those with a weakened or compromised immune system.

How does MRSA spread in a healthcare setting?
Infectious diseases can be transmitted in a number of ways, including physical contact, through bodily fluids, contaminated objects and via airborne inhalation. MRSA is usually spread by direct contact with an infected wound or from contaminated surfaces, usually from the hands healthcare providers.
In hospital situations, staph infections including MRSA are spread by close contact with infected people or patients. Wound drainage and pus is very infectious. Contamination can be caused by skin-to-skin contact and from the infected skin of a carrier onto shared objects.
Examples of items that can spread staph include:
- Personal hygiene or medical objects (i.e. wound dressings, bandages, etc.)
Basically, anything that touches the skin of a staph-infected person can spread the bacteria to others.
Can MRSA infections be prevented?
Numerous studies indicate that when healthcare providers follow proper CDC guidelines, MRSA infections can be largely reduced or prevented. These guidelines include specific procedures that healthcare facilities can employ to reduce or eliminate MRSA infections.
Unfortunately, a significant percentage of clinicians — some studies suggest more than 5% — don’t follow accepted safety standards. This can put any facility – and its employees and patients – at significant risk.
