We report the prevalence and distribution of MRSA genotypes among clinical isolates obtained over a 10-year period (1997-2006) at the main LTCF
in San Francisco, California, USA.
The percentage of case-patients with invasive GAS disease identified as living in nursing homes rose markedly in 1998 when a specific question about LTCF
residence was added to the ABCs case report form.
We used ABCs data to compare incidence, characteristics, and factors contributing to death from invasive GAS infections of elderly LTCF
residents and similar-aged persons residing in the community.
Every person in the community belongs to 1 of 5 age-dependent strata: preschool children (ages birth--4 years), schoolchildren (ages 5-18 years), adults (ages 19-64 years), seniors (ages [greater than or equal to] 65 years) living at home, and seniors (ages [greater than or equal to] 65 years) living in an LTCF
Prior studies in Illinois demonstrated that CRE disproportionately affected chronically ill patients in acute care hospitals (both short- and long-term) and certain LTCFs
that cared for mechanically ventilated patients (5,20).
The logistics required in the isolation of positive patients, monitoring antibiotic-drug use, overseeing hand washing, and environmental cleaning in an LTCF

staff vaccination rates seem to be more important than resident vaccination rates in reducing mortality as a result of influenza.
