What the Experts Say About Managing MRSA: Stage 1

An Ethics Case About Managing MRSA

Stage 1.) Prevention: What do the experts say?

Of course, no coach, trainer, or athletic director can be expected to know about every potential health problem for athletes. But MRSA has been a common enough problem to attract the notice of professional groups such as the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA). Basic information about the infection is available from the NATA and the Centers for Disease Control. Phillips might be able to raise the issue in a non-argumentative way by pointing Morgan to these resources:

NATA Guidelines on the Prevention of Skin Diseases in Athletes
Centers for Disease Control Advice for Coaches on MRSA
