MRSA infections

There has been a lot of coverage in the news lately regarding the occurrence of MRSA infections (a Staph bacterium that has become resistant to many antibiotics) in schools scattered throughout the state and nation.  MRSA has been a significant problem in hospitals and long term care facilities for several years, and it is becoming more common, lately, in community settings, such as schools.
