Abstract

ABSTRACT A retrospective review of methicillin‐resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates from the Naval Medical Center, San Diego, for the years 1994 through 1997, found that the annual number of community‐acquired MRSA isolates increased during the period. These outpatient isolates were more likely than inpatient isolates to be sensitive to a greater number of antibiotics.
