I am a lab tech who has specialized in heme/onc for the past few
years. Recently, I have been working every other weekend for a 
lab that caters to nursing homes. Most of the work I do is Micro.
Micro is certainly not my specialty.

I was amazed at the amount of MRSA that I was growing (usually
on wounds). Lately, I have been growing mass amounts of 
Staff Epi (usually in the eye) that is resistant to oxacillin. I have
been told to report it as MRSE, yet it is not to be treated as a
"panic" situation,  as MRSA is.

Can someone comment on this bug...............
