MRSA is Methicillin Resistant Staph Aureus. In the past it was a hospital acquired infection, but now it is showing up in the community as well. The only antibiotic to treat it is vancomycin.
When I was in the hospital in June for my bilat Mx's, the patient in the room across from me was on contact isolation, for what I don't know. But when I was up and walking the next day and saw that and also that we had the same nursing staff, I wanted out!
Dr's are so quick to prescribe antibiotics for anything, even if it's viral, which antibiotics won't work for. Also some people stop their antibiotics when they are feeling better and then the bacteria become resistant to that particular abx.
Life is a journey...Enjoy the ride!!!
