MRSA (Methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus strain) which is a resistant and adamant variety of gram positive bacteria affecting large populations. Although there are number of pathogens causing serious life threatening diseases, why MRSA is given a special consideration because the lack of treatments. Currently antibiotics are the major weapon against bacteria, but in case of MRSA they are resistant towards almost all the antibiotics currently available. So researchers themselves have proven that the only solution against this dangerous pathogen is by preventing chances of incidence. Take preventive measures before it attacks us. Here we are explorating the chances of getting MRSA infections. There are lots of studies available on MRSA infections abundantly. So we selected a peculiar population ie neonates and our study is about MRSA infection in neonates, because they are the most vulnerable among all population. Neonates are our next generation and we have some responsibilities to keep them safe. The risk factors also vary from population to population according to their physical as well as biological characteristics. One factor which is common to all kind of population is infections associated with surgeries. So the chances of getting MRSA infection through a surgical wound is higher and it leads to a systemic infection also. In case of neonates these chances get doubled when compared to other population.
