Rehabilitation facilities often apply the same standards for management of methicillin-resistant Stapylococcus aureus (MRSA) carriers as acute care hospitals. This makes it difficult to ensure access to the facilities and adequate rehabilitation for carriers. A working group of the Bavarian state committee for multiresistant pathogens addressed these problems by a systematic review of literature, expert group meetings and evaluation of existing hygiene plans. Thereby a model hygiene plan for rehabilitation facilities concerning management of MRSA carriers was derived. The management is based on physician risk assessment blending standards applied in acute and long-term care facilities. For rehabilitation typical risk scenario examples of risk analyses are given. The preventive measures are based on the respective objectives of protection. The risk analysis which gives the basis for the model hygiene plan described in this paper gives equal weight to two main objectives of protection: infection control and medical rehabilitation.
