Hot coffee or tea & MRSA?

  1. This is rather interesting, all I can say is "Thanks Memere'" she hooked me on hot tea when I was 5 years old. She believed it was a cure-all!

    Cool, this is my excuse to enjoy my Starbucks Chai Latte, extra hot, grande size even more.

    So, ah, does this mean I can quit the hot contact precautions gowns and just drink more coffee? Bet that's cheaper for the hospital, too.

    Best win-win situation ever!

    So this is how we are exposed to all those nasty bugs and keep from getting sick - we're all too jacked up on coffee! Exciting news, I must say, as now I have an excuse to continue feeding my Starbucks habit

    I can count on one hand the number of days in the year that I don't have a cup of coffee or hot tea...maybe that's why I'm still negative after over a decade of routine exposure.

    I'm looking forward to them figuring out what the cause of the effect is.
