My mother recently came out of ICU with a tracheotomy and "Mercers" disease. She was almost re-hospitalized for a round of intravenous antibiotics. Fortunately, she is on bactoban and doing well. (She has metastic breast cancer and 2 tumors in her chest cavity have damaged nerves that have paralized her vocal chords- DEEP BREATH & PRAYING TO GOD FOR RECOVERY)....
My question is- WOW- How do you stay healthy while working in hospitals? Does your immune system get boosted after awhile? Have you ever gotten sick from a patient? How safe is it working with all these germs?? How sanitary are hospitals really?
