Abstract

ABSTRACT One hundred isolates of Staphylococcus aureus were collected in a laboratory serving several hospitals and clinics in southeastern Wisconsin and tested for mupirocin susceptibility. Only two isolates of S. aureus showed mupirocin resistance. The mupirocin‐resistant isolates were from hospitalized patients with positive blood cultures.
