MRSA or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is part of a deadly class of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
The symptoms of the MRSA infection depend on what part of the body is infected. MRSA usually causes only mild infections, but it can progress to large boils, hemorrhagic pneumonia or flesh-eating disease in rare cases.
In some cases the infection can be fatal.
Patients testing positive for the infection are being isolated, and staff have heightened infection control measures, including extra cleaning.
