In 2008, an intensive care unit (ICU) in a large Chinese hospital was moved from a 6-bed old ward to a 20-bed new ward. After the move, the prevalence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in patients and environmental sites decreased significantly, but the number of ICU-acquired cases per imported MRSA case increased from 1.4 to 4.1. This study suggests that the nurse cohorting level and hand hygiene compliance are strong predicators of MRSA transmission in ICUs.
