What is MRSA?
MRSA (pronounced meer-sa) is an acronym for methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus – also known as the “Superbug” and can cause deadly infections in patients in healthcare facilities and in the community.
MRSA Survivors Network was founded in early 2003. MSN was the first consumer organization in the U.S. to raise the alarm concerning the MRSA epidemic and other multi-drug resistant healthcare-acquired infections. MSN has been the key catalyst for change on an international and national front with its groundbreaking crusade and mission to stop MRSA deaths and infections. MSN partners with healthcare professionals, healthcare companies and consumer organizations.
