Very Few Parents Are Aware Of Drug-Resistant Infections Of Their Children. Lack of acquaintanceship and fear are common among parents of children with the drug-resistant staph bacteria called MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), says a recent study. Health care staff need to do a better job of educating parents while addressing their concerns and easing their fears, said the researchers at the Johns Hopkins Children Center in Baltimore. The writing-room authors conducted interviews with 100 parents and other caregivers of children hospitalized with new or established MRSA.
