چکیده انگلیسی


• This PI project was conducted to increase the efficiency of a targeted MRSA screening program.
• We share how we introduced PCR-based testing in practice with positive outcomes.
• Adopting PCR-based testing reduces loss of eligible patients from the program.
• Cost savings still exist when PCR-based testing is used.

An interdisciplinary team implemented a screening program targeting patients with a history of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), to reduce unnecessary contact isolation. After converting from a 2-step culture-based protocol to single polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing, we increased the efficiency of the screening program from 77% to 100%. Despite the higher cost of PCR-based testing, this program remained cost-saving.
