American Journal of Infection Control,

Jarvis WR et al. – The survey documents that the MRSA prevalence in 2010 is higher than that reported in the 2006 survey. However, the majority of facilities currently are performing active surveillance testing, and, compared with 2006, the rate of MRSA infection has decreased while the rate of MRSA colonization has increased.
