Value of copper bath tubs for MRSA prevention?

My 40 yr old daughter takes long daily baths, and at her previous house she suffered repeated MRSA attacks. She regularly applied bleach to the tub, to no seeming avail. She has since moved, and has not had attacks at her new place. She is unwilling to just shower.

Have you any info on the value of copper bath tubs for preventing MRSA? Alloys, surface finish, maintenance, etc? If such a tub would be desirable, any suggested sources?

Thanks, from a long time listener of TWiM and TWiV.
