Abstract

Care home residents have a higher risk of contracting a healthcare-associated infection than the general population. This article describes a three-dimensional strategy that reduced MRSA colonisation among this group. This project won a Nursing Times/Health Service Journal Patient Safety Award in the primary care category in 2011.
