During testing for Staphylococcus aureus in an intensive care unit in France in 2011, we found that methicillin-sensitive S. aureus clonal complex 398 was the most frequent clone (29/125, 23.2%).

It was isolated from patients (5/89, 5.6%), health care workers (2/63, 3.2%), and environmental sites (15/864, 1.7%). Results indicate emergence of this clone in a hospital setting.
