A multilevel model of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus acquisition within the hierarchy of an Australian tertiary hospital
Hospitals without universal single room accommodations typically contain multibed cubicles within wards. In this study, we examined whether the variation in a patient's risk for acquiring methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a major tertiary hospital was greatest at the bed, cubicle, or ward level, and quantified the risk of MRSA acquisition associated with exposure to MRSA-colonized/infected patients within the same bed, cubicle, and ward at differently distributed lag times....[Show more]
