Types of MRSA
There are two general types of MRSA infections. These are Healthcare-associated MRSA (HA-MRSA) infections and Community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA) infections.
HA-MRSA infections account for most of MRSA infections and are commonly found in people who have been hospitalized in their recent past. While CA-MRSA occurs in healthy people who have had no hospital treatment. However the infection could have been acquired by sharing equipment or in community areas.
