I've nursed a couple of patients with this and know someone who's husband had it :uhoh21:
With the patients that I have nursed I must say their recovery was down to a fast diagnosis, prompt surgery to remove affected areas and further regular surgery as required. No messing about here - straight to theatre. I work in urology so this has lead to plastic surgery being required but at least 1 testicle was saved in each case.
My collegues hubby did not fair so well - he spent a lot of time in ITU with lots of radical surgery to abdomin - then he got MRSA
No barrier nursing was involved.
