MRSA - FAQ0004

Q: What is the definition of an episode of MRSA bacteraemia?

A: An episode is considered to be a repeat report from the same individual within 14 days of the first report, where day 1 is considered the first day; such repeat reports should not be reported. Duplicate reports that are more than 14 days apart from the first report of that episode should be reported, as these are considered to be a separate episode.
