Working Together to Stop MRSA -The Equip Them Well Program

MRSA stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and is a bacterial infection that is hard to treat as it is resistant to traditional antibiotic treatment. It can enter the body through any open source, such as a cut, scrape, wound, or by any source that enters the body such as a breathing tube or catheter. Most people think that MRSA is a hospital acquired infection, but it can also be acquired in a public setting such as fire departments, day care centers, schools and gymnasiums where equipment is shared from person to person. It is a serious staph infection that can cause serious health complications.

Learn more about how you can reduce your chances of acquiring MRSA. Watch the video below and learn techniques to protect your children from contracting MRSA. The best prevention is education, so be informed  by joining the Equip Them Well program and help spread the word!

FTC Guidelines require that I disclose that this post is through the One2One Campaign. By raising awareness of MRSA, I am also included in a chance to win a gift card through the One2One network for my participation. This perk has not influenced my decision to make this post as everyone needs to be educated toward the dangers of MRSA and how to prevent it. Please, watch the video, and pass along this information to anyone who you feel might benefit from the information. Thanks to the Equip Them All campaign program and One2One Network for raising awareness of this potentially deadly bacteria infection. 


My nephew acquired MRSA from a long scratch on his arm he received during a football game he played in. He was hospitalized and had to have cultures done on his arm, which he still talks about being very, VERY painful. I wouldn't want anyone to have to go through that. Thanks for bringing some awareness about that fact that MRSA can come from other sources, not just being in the hospital.
