In a trauma scene such as a suicide, homicide, or other violent event, blood and bodily fluids present a biohazard. The possibility of infectious materials contaminating the area is a serious concern. MRSA/Staph/C-Diff/Swine Flu/Hepatitis/HIV/Scabies/Bacterial Infections are just some of the reasons biohazard and hazardous waste cleanup is necessary.
Additionally, these same infectious hazards present serious threats and problematic challenges in commonly trafficked areas such as athletic locker rooms, health clubs, hospitals, day care centers and the like.
MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) is a biological agent that's responsible for difficult-to-treat infections in humans and other mammals. Sometimes referred to as a Staph infection, it is also more commonly called the "MRSA super bug", and there are two kinds: hospital-acquired (HA- MRSA), and community-acquired (CA-MRSA). It can survive on a variety of surface materials and fabrics, and therefore complete sanitation is necessary in areas where people come in contact with these surfaces. C-difficile most commonly affects older adults in hospitals or long term care facilities. MRSA/Staff/Hepatitis/AIDS and other infectious bacteria can also be present in vehicles such as ambulances, school buses, police cruisers, and in schools, doctor's offices and medical facilities, and public restrooms.
