MRSA Screening Information
Screening patients for healthcare associated infections helps us to give them the best possible care. It means that we can take action to treat the infection before they come in, or provide them with dedicated specialist care when they come in.
The Trust screens patients for MRSA before coming in for planned surgery or for an overnight stay. We also screen patients once they have been admitted following an emergency. This supports our commitment to full compliance with the national screening policy for MRSA.
In line with national policy, the Trust does not screen very low risk patients such as most paediatric and maternity patients, and patients who are attending for day case endoscopy, eye surgery (e.g. cataracts), and minor dermatological procedures.
