MRSA requires quarantine in hospitals due to how severe it is. My mother (a former phlebotomist) had plenty of experience wearing an outfit that practically resembles a low-grade hazmat suit to draw blood from MRSA patients. This also involved entering a room that removes any germs particles/possible bacteria from her clothing before (and after) when performing any blood work on anyone carrying this staph infection. Below are some thoughts or some relief regarding this very dangerous and life-threatening bacteria.
MRSA is a bacteria that actually gets stronger over time to the point whereas antibiotics can not longer fight back (if not treated properly.) This bacteria is VERY contagious and lives on the nose and skin of MRSA carriers. It is not carried through natural resources (such as water or soil) but antibiotics such as beta-lactam are useless in fighting the bacteria. Attacking this bacteria can be difficult, but, thankfully excellent information has been provided to avoid any confusion for treatment that is usually provided for strangers to MRSA.
Michelle Moore (a MRSA survivor and researcher) has some excellent steps to follow when it comes to tackling what she calls the “three headed monster” known as MRSA. According to StaphInfectionResources.com, she provides a lot of excellent information so that someone trying to treat their staph infection is not beating around the bush and taking care of the problem. One of the major points she makes (which is in her book) is that once you’re thrown on the “Big Pharma” merry-go-round it can be very costly if you’re not thinking for yourself. Her book also touches on “Miracle Cures” as well as identifying what doctors may do (unwittingly) to actually make MRSA worse. This book is highly suggested for research treatment due to Michelle’s experience with the bacteria.
Most cases of MRSA are discovered from frequent visits to the hospital, but it is also prevalent (and not limited to) athletes, soldiers, prisoners, and any area where human-to-human contact is common. Being aware of red flags such as open sores on a person’s body (or any urge to touch the open wounds to avoid any possible transmission of the disease.) Not taking unnecessary antibiotics or sharing personal items is a must for MRSA prevention. Following these steps to avoid this highly contagious (and sometimes deadly) bacteria is advised due to the fact that knowledge is power.
