MRSA test: The MRSA test is a laboratory test used to identify methicillin-resistant and non-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) bacteria from a cultured isolate derived from a human sample. Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is resistant to common antibiotics used to treat S. aureus infections. MRSA is most commonly known for causing skin infections, but can also infect other organ systems such as the lungs and bloodstream. Some hospitals and hospital settings are required to test employees and some (e.g. high-risk patients) or all of their patients for MRSA.
