Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Bacteremia rates

Find our Fact Sheets here. These can be printed as a handy reference guide.

Staphylococcus aureus are bacteria that normally live on the skin and mucous membranes (nose) without causing infection. MRSA is not a disease but a type of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria that are not eliminated by simple antibiotics. If these bacteria get into your bloodstream then this would be called a bacteremia or a bloodstream infection. Bacteria should never be found in your bloodstream.

Here are our MRSA Bacteremia statistics, presented according to the guidelines given by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care (MoHLTC).


After you have read the information presented here, if you still have questions about MRSA Bacteremia at BCHS, please ask us.
