MRSA: The Ticking Time Bomb and Doctors Are Frightened

Many Doctors are Frightened

Worried M.D.

They know that MRSA infections – which were once confined to people with fresh surgical wounds under long-term hospital care – are now moving rapidly into the general population. MRSA kills more people than AIDS! And, anyone who comes into contact with groups of people on a regular basis – such as in supermarkets, churches, hospital rooms, business offices, gyms, or other places where people congregate – are susceptible.

Staph infections, including MRSA, occur most frequently among persons in hospitals and healthcare facilities (such as nursing homes and dialysis centers) who have weakened immune systems. These healthcare-associated staph infections include surgical wound infections, urinary tract infections, bloodstream infections, and pneumonia.

Staph and MRSA can also cause illness in persons outside of hospitals and healthcare facilities. MRSA infections that are acquired by persons who have not been recently (within the past year) hospitalized or had a medical procedure (such as dialysis, surgery, catheters) are known as community-associated MRSA infections. Staph or MRSA infections in the community are usually manifested as skin infections that look like pimples or boils and occur in otherwise healthy people.

FAQs for the Workplace

NOTE: This information is provided for general workplaces, not healthcare facilities. Healthcare workers should refer to information found at the following links: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dhqp/ar_mrsa.htmland http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dhqp/ar_mrsa.html.

Can I get MRSA from someone at work?

MRSA is transmitted most frequently by direct skin-to-skin contact or contact with shared items or surfaces that have come into contact with someone else’s infection (e.g., towels, used bandages).

MRSA skin infections can occur anywhere. However, some settings have factors that make it easier for MRSA to be transmitted. These factors, referred to as the 5 C’s, are as follows: Crowding, frequent skin-to-skin Contact, Compromised skin (i.e., cuts or abrasions), Contaminated items and surfaces, and lack of Cleanliness. Locations where the 5 C’s are common include schools, dormitories, military barracks, households, correctional facilities, and daycare centers.

If I have MRSA, can I go to work?

Unless directed by a healthcare provider, workers with MRSA infections should not be routinely excluded from going to work.

Exclusion from work should be reserved for those with wound drainage (“pus”) that cannot be covered and contained with a clean, dry bandage and for those who cannot maintain good hygiene practices.

Workers with active infections should be excluded from activities where skin-to-skin contact with the affected skin area is likely to occur until their infections are healed.

What should I do if I think I have a staph or MRSA infection?

See your healthcare provider and follow your healthcare provider’s advice about returning to work.

If I have staph, or a MRSA skin infection, what can I do to prevent the spread of MRSA at work and at home?

You can prevent spreading staph or MRSA skin infections to others by following these steps:

  • Cover your wound. Keep areas of the skin affected by MRSA covered. Keep wounds that are draining or have pus covered with clean, dry bandages. Follow your healthcare provider’s instructions on proper care of the wound. Pus from infected wounds can contain staph and MRSA, so keeping the infection covered will help prevent the spread to others. Bandages or tape can be discarded with the regular trash.
  • Clean your hands. You, your family, and others in close contact should wash their hands frequently with soap and warm water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, especially after changing the bandage or touching the infected wound.
  • Do not share personal items. Avoid sharing personal items such as uniforms, personal protective equipment, clothing, towels, washcloths or razors that may have had contact with the infected wound or bandage.
  • Talk to your doctor. Tell any healthcare providers who treat you that you have or had a staph or MRSA skin infection.

What should I do if I suspect that my uniform, clothing, personal protective equipment or workstation has become contaminated with MRSA?

Wash uniforms, clothing, sheets and towels that become soiled with water and laundry detergent. Drying clothes in a hot dryer, rather than air-drying, also helps kill bacteria in clothes. Use a dryer to dry clothes completely.

Cleaning contaminated equipment and surfaces with detergent-based cleaners or Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered disinfectants is effective at removing MRSA from the environment. Because cleaners and disinfectants can be irritating and exposure has been associated with health problems such as asthma, it is important to read the instruction labels on all cleaners to make sure they are used safely and appropriately. Where disinfection is concerned, more is not necessarily better. Additional information on appropriate use of cleaners and disinfectants can be found in the Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E) 10 Step Guide to Green Cleaning Implementation (http://www.h2e-online.org/docs/h2e10stepgreenclean-r5.pdf Adobe PDF file [PDF-370 KB]External Web Site Icon). Environmental cleaners and disinfectants should not be used to treat infections. The EPA provides a list of EPA-registered products effective against MRSA: http://epa.gov/oppad001/chemregindex.htmExternal Web Site Icon.

What can my boss (employers) do to prevent the spread of staph or MRSA at the workplace?

  • Place importance on worker safety and health protection in the workplace
  • Ensure the availability of adequate facilities and supplies that encourage workers to practice good hygiene
  • Ensure that routine housekeeping in the workplace is followed
  • Ensure that contaminated equipment and surfaces are cleaned with detergent-based cleaners or Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered disinfectants

Signs and Symptoms

What does a staph or MRSA infection look like?

Staph bacteria, including MRSA, can cause skin infections that may look like a pimple or boil and can be red, swollen, painful, or have pus or other drainage. More serious infections may cause pneumonia, bloodstream infections, or surgical wound infections.

How can I prevent staph or MRSA skin infections?

Practice good hygiene:

  • Keep your hands clean by washing thoroughly with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Keep cuts and scrapes clean and covered with a bandage until healed.
  • Avoid contact with other people’s wounds or bandages.
  • Avoid sharing personal items such as uniforms and personal protective equipment.

Are staph and MRSA infections treatable?

Yes. Many staph skin infections may be treated by draining the abscess or boil and may not require antibiotics. Drainage of skin boils or abscesses should only be done by a healthcare provider.

However, some staph and MRSA infections are treated with antibiotics. If you are given an antibiotic, take all of the doses, even if the infection is getting better, unless your doctor tells you to stop taking it. Do not share antibiotics with other people or save unfinished antibiotics to use at another time.

If after visiting your healthcare provider the infection is not getting better after a few days, contact them again. If other people you know or live with get the same infection tell them to go to their healthcare provider.

MRSA Utterly Destroyed by NutraSilver

We are not medical professionals; we are distributors trying to help people. We appreciate the dozens and dozens of testimonials from grateful people who use NutraSilver® to treat their Morgellons disease and who after a few weeks have gone back to their previous lives without their non-healing lesions, brain-fog or most of the other debilitating symptoms. We sincerely hope you will try NutraSilver® and experience for yourself this amazing healing.

NutraSilver is a Fast and Effective MRSA Treatment

NutraSilver was scientifically engineered by a physicist about 18 years ago. His intent was to create a natural product that killed the HIV/ AIDS virus. Because of the politics of that time, attention was moved to humanitarian efforts because NutraSilver kills all water-borne pathogens. . Millions of bottles of NutraSilver®have been shipped globally so people in third-world countries can drink water without becoming ill or dying. Most people do not know that pathogenic water is the number 1 killer of humans on earth.

MRSA Can Not Develop a Resistance To NutraSilver

Infections of all kinds are becoming increasingly resistant to the antibiotics prescribed to treat them. Experts say it is because of the overuse of antibiotics by humans as well as by food producers.

When antibiotics are administered too often — whether to humans or to animals — a few strong bacteria survive and reproduce, giving rise tonew generations of resistant organisms. Unfortunately, this is only part of the antibiotic problem. Animals raised on antibiotics develop extracellular genetic material called plasmids that can survive the cooking process. These plasmids instruct the normal bacteria in your body to be resistant to the antibiotic.The greatest single most important issue facing the health care industry today is the rampant occurrence of MRSA in hospitals and surgical wards. FDA-certified labs conducted in-vitro NutraSilver testing against the most prevalent strain of MRSA obtainable. The results were astounding.
