What Is MRSA?

Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) is a type of the Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria which usually is harmless. It can be in or on your body for many years and you would never know about it as it would have no physical symptoms. Approximately a quarter of the population will be carrying the MRSA bacteria at any one time.

It is only when someone has a weak or low immune system due to illness or treatment in hospital that it can become active when it can then cause serious illness, even leading at times to death.

What Should You Do If You Have MRSA Symptoms?

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, and are in hospital or have recently been in hospital, you should seek urgent medical advice by calling your General Practitioner or calling attention to your illness to the hospital staff. Although MRSA is resistant to many antibiotics, it can be treated, and the earlier that treatment can be started the more chance there is of a full recovery.

MRSA Compensation Claim?

If you have picked up MRSA in hospital due to the hospital not being kept sufficiently clean you may be able to make a claim for compensation. You should seek advice from a claims company or solicitor with experience of MRSA claims and in many cases you will be able to make a claim on a no win, no fee basis.
