Abstract

Molecular identification methods based on the staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) genotype are more reliable than clinical risk factors and demographic data for differentiating community-acquired and healthcare-associated (HCA) meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). However, patients with community-onset (CO) MRSA infections, defined as a culture-positive sample obtained
