For the time being. I need someone in the medical fields opinion on MRSA in a patient. Back story is she was admitted Monday night late and had absess drained now diagnosed as mrsa.(staph) the red has spread from down forearm.
For those that have no idea what this is...(like me).
MRSA stands for methicillin-resistantStaphylococcus aureus. MRSA is a “staph” germ that does not get better with the first-line antibiotics that usually cure staph infections.
My bad man. Yes that link explains it. Ultimately we all have it on outlr bodies it just takes one thing to aggravate it.
To show basis in first pic was about hour ago second was from monday night as mass was lanced drained and packed.
Don't understand what you want to know? Basically it's a staph infection that's resistant to most antibiotics, and requires something like vancomyacin to treat it.
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
Why is she not on isolation?
Did you get permission to show her face? HIPPA violation.

Feel free to PM me about it. I'd be happy to discuss it with you.
My mom has had it for 5 or 6 yrs. and has tried every treatment known to man. Her's started after a hip/knee replacement. She is in poor health (RA) and surgery is out of the question. The only positive is that its localized to her knee. She has to keep it bandaged because of drainage.
Its my fiance guys and the biggest thing was he wanted to discharge her the last two days and the infection is still spreading
See my PM to you, NSTide. Let's carry the discussion over there.
Your fiance might appreciate you removing pictures of her face in such unflattering photos, particularly in a publicly viewable thread.
Only if OP is a covered entity...if he's just a friend she may be pissed, but not a HIPAA violation...and come on man, if you're gonna accuse him of a breach, spell it correctly. (g)
She already knows. Besides no one looks their best in a hospital. And we were looking for an opinion and people with experience with mrsa.
