MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)

FRONTLINE ER in Richmond, Texas has a number of staff members experienced in treating MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus).

MRSA is a bacterium that causes infection in most parts of the body. It is difficult to treat as it is resistant to most common antibiotics. MRSA is often caused by sharing towels or other personal items, having a weak immune system, unsanitary or crowded living conditions. In some cases, hospitalized individuals are more vulnerable as they have open sites that are easily contaminated by MRSA.

The initial symptoms include mild infections on the skin, but the condition can soon become dangerous, causing more serious infections and can even infect surgical wounds. MRSA can spread from one person to another. This means you can contract MRSA by touching another person who has it on their skin. We always provide the highest quality and most compassionate care possible to patients suffering with MRSA.

When we at FRONTLINE ER diagnose someone with MRSA, the first step is to assess the infection area. It is widely believed that MRSA is not harmful, but in some cases it can become a threat to life. After initial assessment and diagnostic tests, the next step is to evaluate the stage of infection.

MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) Treatment

MRSA is very difficult to treat as it is resistant to most traditional antibiotics and drugs. We have effective antibiotics in stock which can cure the infection and heal your body fast. If a patient has been diagnosed with MRSA infection, he or she must take all the antibiotics as prescribed by our doctors, even if symptoms seem to disappear before the prescribed dose is finished. In some cases, we also use surgery to treat the infected area. Our experienced staff examine each patient thoroughly in order to cure the disease.

Follow-Up Procedures

FRONTLINE ER maintains contact with its patients to advise the best course of action. Once the patient begins to recover, our professionals are also on-hand to provide counselling. We also advise a plan of action for patients to ensure excellent long-term recovery prospects and to prevent further suffering.
