Abstract

Background: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) may causes Hospital Acquired Infection(HAI). Mobile phone can be the transmission media of MRSA. Purpose : To determine the correlation between mobile phone,nasal and throat swab and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) colonization among clinical students of medical faculty of Airlangga university Method: 15 clinical students of medical faculty of Airlangga university were screened and total of 45 samples(15 mobile phone swabs, nasal swabs and throat swabs respectively) is taken. Samples were transported in mannitol salt broth, inoculated onto mannitol salt agar(MSA) and nutrient agar and incubated at 37°C for 18-24 hours. Staphylococcus aureus were identified when gram positive cocci in cluster, with coagulase and catalase positive. Cefoxitin disk diffusion method was done to identify MRSA. Results: There is no significant correlation (negative cronbach alpha value) of mobile phone swab, nasal swab and throat swab and MRSA colonisation among clinical students of medical faculty in Airlangga university. The prevalence of MRSA in this study is 60%. Gender, usage age of mobile phone, history of antibiotic use or hospitalisation one month prior study ,maintenance of mobile phone and knowledge of MRSA have no significant correlation with MRSA colonisation in this study. However, working period is found to have significant correlation with MRSA colonisation. Conclusion: No significant correlation of mobile phone swab, nasal swab and throat swab and MRSA colonisation however working period have the significant correlation with MRSA colonisation. The prevalence of MRSA colonisation is also high (60%), hence better infection control is needed to prevent transmission of MRSA.
