Good evening! Today I just found out my uncle has MRSA in the blood and the hospital never told us until after we were all hugging and kissing him. I'm very concerned because I have a 5 yr old and a 7month old to come home too. My mom never washed her hands after leaving the hospital last night and decided to kiss my kids and share a drink with my son. I'm very concerned for him. Please tell me my kids are going to be okay! I mean we all had contact with him and the kids without knowing what he had. How long does it take for you to know you have this stuff? Is my mom at risk for kissing him? My son's doctor said its a waiting game but arent there tests to know for sure if the kids would have it instead of letting it get worst? SHould I call and speak with someone else in the office? What can we all do now that we didnt take precautions with my uncle? He is in bad shape.

Did you ever get a good answer to your questions? We are in the same boat and are worried sick about our children who were unknowingly exposed.

Hello Kristeen and Christy, I am sorry to hear about your loved ones contracting MRSA and understand how worried you are. You will find information about MRSA and other healthcare aquired infections on our website which was formed by people who have all been affected by this in some way. I hope that our website will help you as much as it has helped others. best wishes xx
