Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine epidemiological characteristics of Staphylococcus aureus carriage within the Royal Darwin Hospital, in the Northern Territory. Community-associated meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) was first reported in remote Australian Indigenous communities. It is a prominent clinical pathogen in northern Australia with potential for transmission within the local hospital setting.
