  1. How are you spending your retirement?

    I totally agree....once a nurse, always a nurse. I advise family and friends, advocate for them and many others, and read nursing related information and articles all the time. If somebody is in an accident or falls, I'm there! It's in the blood, ...
  2. Can nurses with MRSA work?

    The problems with MRSA colonized and/or infected Nurses or HCWs. 1. you can spread disease with either condition 2. you don't have infected family members but are constantly exposed to MRSA on your job, yet your employers deny workmans comp for misse...
  3. Contracting MRSA

    The gossip, rumor and fright surrounding MRSA colonization and infection in nurses is apalling ot me. It should not be this way. On Friday I am going to particiapte in an OSHA conferrence call as a representative of the Consumers Union. I am a MRSA...
  4. MRSA Colonization in Healthcare workers and patients

    Yes, think of the money they would have to pay. But, why shouldn't they? Nurses are willing to put their lives on the line for patients. Hospitals fail to enact effective preventative measures (in the case of MRSA, ADI)....so they are liable for t...

  6. MRSA Colonization in Healthcare workers and patients

    http://www.shea-online.org/Assets/files/position_papers/SHEA_MRSA_VRE.pdf This is the 2003 SHEA recommendation for MRSA and VRE control. Since 2003, SHEA and CDC both have weakened recommendations rather than enhancing these very effective recommend...
  7. MRSA Colonization in Healthcare workers and patients

    Your husbands experience is exactly the reason that MRSA continues to be a problem in our hospitals. If you share a room with a MRSA patient, you share their MRSA. They use the same bathroom and facilities, and often times the same BP cuff, stethesc...
  8. MRSA Colonization in Healthcare workers and patients

    Decolonization for MRSA...simple decolonizatoin....is generally 5 days of Mupirocin into the nose a couple times per day and 3 to 5 Chlorhexidine baths. My thoughts are that HCWs with newly diagnosed MRSA(either colonization or infection) should au...
  9. MRSA Colonization in Healthcare workers and patients

    It is very personal, but it is also very professional. I have aligned mysel with World renown Epidemiologists, with years of experience and proof that ADI works. Some are known worldwide for their honest and sucessful work in the prevention of MRSA. ...
  10. MRSA Colonization in Healthcare workers and patients

    Try reading thousands of articles, from Medical and nursing journals and all sorts of other media with the same sad news that the MRSA epidemic is growing inside and outside hospitals. Read the couple hundred studies that prove that MRSA ADI greatl...

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/17/AR2010051700006.html?hpid=sec-health Just one more disturbing article about MRSA, this time in children.
  12. MRSA Colonization in Healthcare workers and patients

    I will get that to you as soon as i find it in my research articles....this afternoon sometime.
  13. MRSA Colonization in Healthcare workers and patients

    While I do understand your feelings about not being swabbed, I feel that it is unwise. If you are colonized, you are at much higher risk (at least 7 times more likely) of active infection. The things that doctors do differently if you are MRSA col...
  14. MRSA Colonization in Healthcare workers and patients

    It is scientific fact that colonized MRSA can spread. It is also scientific fact that a patient is 7 time more likely to develop an active MRSA infection if they are not decolonized. I am not suggesting that every single colonized person be decolon...
  15. How are you spending your retirement?

    I am using my knowledge to run my home business educating people on the harmful environmental toxins they have in their homes and the effects it has on their health. Even though I am not actively "nursing" I am still helping people. There is more th...
