Employee’s infection proves costly to Liz Claiborne store

When an employee with an unidentified infection came to work at the Liz Claiborne Outlet Store at Lighthouse Place in Michigan City, management feared it might be methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)—a potentially deadly infection that was in the news late last year.

Management closed the store, destroyed all the merchandise and disinfected the store before reopening about a week later.

Tests later showed the infection was not MRSA.

Tip: An excess of caution led Liz Claiborne employees to overreact. While MRSA is serious, it requires close physical contact to spread. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health publishes a fact sheet on MRSA in the workplace at www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/mrsa.
