Abstract: Summary Background Staphylococcus aureus is a human pathogen of clinical importance related to a variety of infections. Aim The objective of this study was to analyze the molecular and epidemiological characteristics of S. aureus obtained from healthcare professionals (HCP) of a hospital in southwestern Bahia, Brazil. Methods Samples were collected from hands, nasal cavity, and laboratory… Show more

“…More than half of the survey respondents agreed that healthcare workers could act as a vector to transfer resistant strains of pathogens within a hospital. This complies with various studies [ 35 , 36 ], such as a study conducted in Tanzania that found that healthcare workers, including nurses, had a high percentage of MRSA carriage [ 37 ]. Like a previous study [ 21 ], many respondents believed that switching empiric therapy to definitive therapy in the presence of culture and sensitivity tests could help reduce ABR.…”

“…While most isolates were susceptible for rifampicin (88.1%), fusidic acid (76.2%), and lincomycin (66.7%) (Fig 1). HA MRSA are known to be resistant to non-Beta lactam antibiotics including aminoglycopeptides, fluoroquinolones, and macrolides [25] while CA MRSA demonstrate resistance to Beta lactams, fluoroquinolones, and tetracyclines [27]. Our study shows extensive drug resistance among CA MRSA that is steadily increasing in prevalence compared to previous data.…”

“…These strains do not secrete PVL toxin in general [25]. In addition, HA MRSA is resistant to non-Beta lactam antibiotics including aminoglycopeptides, fluoroquinolones, and macrolides [26,27], while CA MRSA demonstrate resistance to Beta lactams, fluoroquinolones, and tetracyclines [28][29][30]. In Cameroon, the differentiation of these two types of strains is set up following the CDC definition based on surgical intervention, hospital environment contact, and hospital stay [31].…”

“…During this study, 66.67% of the cloacal swabs were infected with MRSA, whereas 32.60% were found in Nigeria [25]. Surprisingly, 53.84% of the poultry farmers' hand wash samples were contaminated with MRSA, whereas 83.3% were reported to health workers in Brazil [26]. Different classes of antibiotics are frequently used for the treatment of poultry in Bangladesh [27].…”
