Vancomycin is the most common antibiotic to be used to treat methicillin resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA). It is an antibiotic that can be given through your dialysis needles at the end of dialysis so that it does not require another stick of the fistula. Vancomycin is given at the end of dialysis and then stays in your blood to kill the bacteria until your next dialysis. With the next dialysis, the Vancomycin level is made lower by the dialysis treatment and the drug must be administered again in order to maintain killing levels of Vancomycin in your blood. I believe this is the best treatment and can be given at your dialysis center. This would allow you to go home from the hospital and still have effective treatment for your MRSA infection.
