The risk factors for MRSA colonisation and subsequent infection are well established in people, but less so in animals. Humans who are most at risk will have had: 1) Exposure to healthcare facilities such as hospitals;
2) Previous surgical procedures;
3) Indwelling devices (e.g. surgical implants such as pins and bone screws);
4) Conditions which reduce the effectiveness of the immune system, such as:
a. underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV);
b. old age;
5) Previous MRSA episodes;
6) Prior antimicrobial use, particularly repeated courses of antibiotics.
