I am a student nurse on a clinical rotation, and was given a 73 year old on contact isolation for MRSA. The client vomitted 5 times within a period of 2 hours. I noticed that the in-house nurses were avoiding to come in and help me when this was going on. Even the client doctor did not want to stay in the room when she was called in and my clinical instructor avoided me all day. Also, my clinical instructor made a comment about not being able to get a nursing position if one is tested positive with MRSA. Now I am concerned if I am infected. Does anyone know how easy one can contact this bacteria and what should I do to find out?
