Abstract

Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is one of the most important pathogen causing hospital-associated infections worldwide. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of MRSA infections at Arifin Achmad General Hospital, Riau Province, Indonesia. This study was a retrospective study using MRSA infected patients' medical record data in Arifin Achmad General Hospital during 2015-2019. There were 600 isolates of Staphylococcus aureus enrolled in this study. Of this, the prevalence of MRSA ranged between 23.8% and 42.7%. The highest prevalence of MRSA infections was found in the surgical ward (44.8%). The MRSA isolates were mostly found among pus specimens (66.5%) and obtained from patients with skin, and soft tissue infections.. vancomycin, tigecycline, and linezolid were highly susceptible to the MRSA isolates. The MRSA infections were frequently found among male patients (51.2%), 46-55 years old (27.9%), length of stay 7-13 days (26.7%), onset more than two days (54.7%), no history of surgery (51.2%), and not referred patients (81.4%). In conclusion, the prevalence of MRSA at Arifin Achmad General Hospital was relatively high. A further hospital surveillance system should be set up to monitor this.
