The most common way methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is spread is through contact with another infected person (skin-to-skin) or from person to object to person.

Hospitals, in particular, are prime breeding grounds as it can be left on bedding and other equipment, so due diligence has to be made for cleaning and disinfecting.
