Hospital-acquired infections develop during stays at medical facilities such as hospitals, long-term healthcare facilities, and surgical centers. They occur when you or someone you know receives treatment for a different health condition or disease. Some of the most common infections include:

MRSA, or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, is a strain of the common Staph infection that’s grown resistant to antibiotics.
