How can I protect myself from MRSA and staph infections?
It is important to practice good hygiene. You can protect yourself from infections by:
• Keeping your hands clean by washing thoroughly with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• Keeping cuts and scrapes clean and covered with a bandage until healed.
• Avoiding contact with other people's wounds or bandages.
• Avoiding sharing personal items such as towels or razors.
