A cluster of 5 methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus infections occurred after administration of methylprednisolone acetate injections in a rheumatology practice. A site visit was conducted to inspect examination rooms, observe techniques, and review charts. The investigation revealed a pervasive lack of aseptic technique that led to multiple opportunities for medication contamination.
