Yeah I followed your thread closely and am definitely glad to see you're doing better - I guess you could say it was a reason why I elected not to hesitate and go to the hospital right away.

Just found out about this stuff.

Kills MRSA in 30 secs.

Quote:
Hospital-acquired infections, (HAIs), have become far too prevalent across the nation. The statistics are grim. Ten million patients will get an infection in a health care institution over the next five years and half a million of them will die. Many people fear going to the hospital because that is where the most virulent antibiotic-resistant microbes are encountered. A vast study conducted several years ago found that about half of the patients in ICU wards around the world are battling some kind of acquired infection. This study looked at data from 1,265 ICU units in 75 countries. The longer the patients stayed in the ICU, the greater the risk of becoming infected—from a 32% chance for patients staying one day or less to a 70% chance for patients staying more than seven days. These patients were more than twice as likely to die than non-infected patients. This problem accounts for about 40% of total ICU health care costs. There is a great need for new approaches to be developed to cope with resistant superbugs. Appropriately, our age is described as being on the cusp of the “post-antibiotic era.”

Microbes in the community are also becoming resistant. Superbugs are on everyone’s mind. MRSA, multi-drug resistant staph aureus, has taken a terrible toll, and continues to proliferate, generating a wide range of afflictions. At this point four million people have MRSA on the skin or in the nostrils, and that is a very conservative estimate. New strains of resistant staph are continuing to show up, especially in livestock. It has been dubbed “the perfect pathogen.” But it has competition for that title. Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, C. Diff, actinobacter, e. coli and many others are developing super strains. One woman, who was infected in a wound care clinic where she had been referred for post-operative care, became colonized by three different superbugs—MRSA, pseudomonas and actinobacter. Five years later she still has an open wound in her abdomen where mesh to repair hernia had been inserted. She is on maintenance doses of very strong antibiotics and running out of options.

I think you should read up on how MRSA is now a common community-acquired pathogen. Now if we were talking about VRSA or VRE...

PS- you know what else kills MRSA? Soap. Alcohol wipes. etc. So, please stop spewing out random, ill-informed advice. Yes, MRSA is a serious infection, but it is definitely treatable and is not necessarily deadly. It's a lot more common than you think.

I already know that, HAIs are a bigger danger.

What advice I'm I spewing, it's all taken from medical websites. Why don't you go take it up with consumer reports?

Maybe you should do some reading up on it.

Strategies to Boost Hand Hygiene Compliance

Quote:
At the top of any qualified infection control agenda is the practice of proper hand hygiene. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) asserts that clean hands are the single most important factor in preventing the spread of dangerous healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in healthcare settings. It is critical that infection control policies for hand hygiene are monitored for compliance regularly, as recent studies have illustrated a reduction in patient infection rates when hand hygiene protocols are correctly followed.

In regards to HAIs (hospital acquired infections): I don't want to turn this into a medical debate, but the people most affected by nosocomial infections are those with compromised immunity/immunodeficiency. If you're a healthy individual, your likelihood of picking up one of these 'superbugs' is not that high. Otherwise, doctors and nurses would be falling over left and right. So no need to fuel people's insecurities.

Sure, doctors could do with washing their hands more often. Nosocomial infections ARE an issue, and some of them might even be iatrogenic. That being said, you're not doing much good to the OP by posting random, non-related tidbits and soundbites from various articles.

I think you are confusing me with maddogs post, he brought up MRSA pneumonia and assumed that was what the OP had.

Yeah, you're right - the pneumonia bit was directed towards his post. My mistake.

Just be more careful before you start making accusations.

I had staph (we feared it was MRSA) not to long ago and I spent a few days in the hospital visiting a friend with MRSA.. It is horrible and I wish you a swift recovery TK. Seriously man, get well soon.

If MRSA can be treated with soap and alcohol wipes why did my friend have to have antibiotics pumped directly into her face (the area of infection)?

Talking about spewing ignorance. MRSA in some cases is incurable. Especially the extremely resistant strains. I hope to god TK is alright and the strain he has is not to severe.

Every conditon in some cases is incurable. Immunocompromised people with MRSA are at risk of mortality. Generally speaking, healthy people will respond to the several antibiotics which are available staph is not resistant to.

Soap and Alcohol will kill MRSA that has not already turned to infection. Has your friend recovered?

Cost of Hospital Acquired Infections United States

If you are a carrier of MRSA it is much harder to get rid of than just washing hands.
