Just fetched mumís medical records, will be getting help to find out more, but not from the Hospital Trust. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the type of MRSA she had.

When she left hospital she was still colonised with it, despite me telling the staff I had contact with vulnerable people, and that my dad would be coming in for cataract treatment in the coming months. Bearing in mind these particular bimbos never admitted she had it in the first place, I suppose I canít really expect much more.

If anyone can tell me what sort of MRSA pseudomonas aeruginosa is, Iíd appreciate knowing, is it one of the more virulent type?

Iím off for a strong drink but will be online later.

When a company posts products to this site wouldn't you think it would be a good idea for them to offer to supply all the test data as well? I am not suggesting that we are experts but this is too important a subject and if a product is claimed to be effective it should also be proven to be effective. I ask this because since MRSA became newsworthy we have had all sorts of companies making claims but not a lot of them back them up with any hard eveidence.

Its 2yrs TODAY since my son COLIN died from M.R.S.A.It would have been his birhday tommorow.He was 32yrs old and the youngest of my six children.We are heart broken.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham are now claiming that 28% of their figures are bringing with them.
Colin passed the criteria for a new liver but never stood a chance.There was NO isolation from the 16 bed ward where all patients were seriously ill.NO cleanup campaign going on!We were never told why a 5 day assessment led to 7wks of hell ending in DEATH.(SEPSIS WAS ON THE DEATH CERTIFICATE!)We contacted them a few weeks later and a meeting was arranged 14 wks after we lost COLIN.We were then told that Colin had M.R.S.A.We obtained Colins records which showed that he aquired the bug on the 10th day and STILL had it on that last awful day!FAMILIES MUST BE GIVEN THE TRUTH!!

I just wanted to thank everyone who offered a prayer for our fundraiser on Friday. It was a great success and we were able to get a lot of information out there as well as have an enjoyable evening.
All proceeds from the evening will be used to fund a documentary about MRSA. Let's hope it helps to make a difference.

Tonight I will be hosting a silent auction in New York, USA to raise funds towards creating a documentary of Tony and Barbara's efforts in the USA. We are trying to focus on this as a global issue. Could anyone who wants say a little prayer that we are successful in reaching many and helping to make a difference in our battle against MRSA? Many thanks to all.

I'm currently recovering from what has been described to me as an 'infection'by doctors, but the more I read about hospital infections and MRSA I am beginning to realise that I don't fully understand what is happening to me, so could really use some help in trying to come to terms with what has happened.

I had spinal surgery/ fusion in Nov 1996 when I was 19years old to correct curvature of the spine. The surgery went well, and as far as I can remember, I had no complications etc at the time. Everything was fine until Jan 2003, when I started to experience an increase in back pain and felt sore all of the time. For months I went to my GP trying out different painkillers, until I asked to be referred back to the hospital that did the spinal surgery all those years ago. I had an appointment Nov 03, and after describing my pain etc, they booked me in for emergencey surgery in Dec because they thought I may have an infection. They took out the metal work left in from the first... read more

For anyone interested here is the link to the information regarding the new Prontoderm range of products that I have been requested to post. It is not feasible to post the full results of the long term patient trials but they can be emailed.
