  1. stomach contents in my eye and mouth!

    Please please be careful. I am at home having to put 2 eye drops in my eyes every 30 minutes and a salve in them twice a day. It feels like battery acid going in my eyes when I put the vancomycin in. The pain is unbearable. I am scared to go back aro...

  8. Chemo Exposure, What to do, Worried, Precautions

    I work in Oncology and chemo to me is not my biggest worry. It is all the MRSA, VRE, C Diff we have on the floor. I know that is on every floor but with patients who have low immune systems, it is easier for them to contact these bugs.
