Staphylococcus may be evaluated to be a serious microorganism to colonizes and contaminate both the healthy and immuno-competent people in the community along with the hospitalized patients with decreased immunity. This bacterium has been commonly present on the skin and in the nasal cavity of the human body. In the particular sites the organisms may give rise to local diseases of the nose, urethra, vagina and gastrointestinal tract, skin however most of them are minor and not associated with any mortality. S. aureus as well as coagulase-negative staphylococcus which are gram-positive bacteria that lives on the upper respiratory, mouth and skin structure creation, are the possible element for nosocomial and opportunistic disease in humans as well as in animals. Major complications involved with staphylococcus involved SSI, bullous impetigo, skin & soft tissues infection, bacteremia, pulmonary infections etc. The situation is further complicated by methicillin resistance in staphylococcus. MRSA/MRCoNS are considered as the emerging cause of hospital-acquired infections. it is very necessary to quantify the load of infections in order to achieve good hospital infection control policies. Furthermore, the morbidity and mortality rate may also be reduced in the same manner.
