My close friend has MRSA infection, she was tested before going in for knee surgery scheduled in a couple wks. From what I read it is contagious, it can be dangerous and you are isolated by yourself in the hospital. Nurses and drs wear gloves, gowns when seeing you. She wants me too visit her alot. Now I get things really easy and am terrified of getting it, or am I being too sensitive? She didn't even ask what it was just said she only needs to take antibiotics 5 days before her surgery and says its no big deal. Does anyone have any knowledge of this infection?
