In discussion related to MRSA and long term care residents, she suggested more information and research as to how communal living increases the risk of MRSA other than what I had already discussed. The thoughts reflected the shared meals and activity times  which are  more specific to long term care, and place the residents in a group setting more of the time, how might this increase risks? 

Are antibiotics over used in long term care residents related to MRSA?
What are the core elements and rationale of antibiotic stewardship as noted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2015?
