HELP ME PLEASEEE!!!

  1. 0 Hi, I am a nursing student, and I cannot find much information on MRSA. I'm trying to write a pre-clinical worksheet before tomorrow and one of the questions is "identify two client alb or diagnositc tests that are significant to this patient." I can't think of anything. I was thinking a blood test to test for infection in other parts of the body other than skin, but im not sure? If anyone can help, i would appreciate it!! Thanks so much!!

    Blood cultures, nasal swab and urine culture for MRSA is important as it may only be present in one of these systems and would be missed if all 3 cultures are not obtained.

    Hope this helps!
