In my recent posting with the heading "INFECTION CONTROL TRAINING" I mentioned that the " clinical staff must be a bunch of idiots"

If you click the link below and scroll down to the heading "Hand Hygiene Behaviour...." I have been proved correct.

I cannot believe this is TRUE.

Hi can anyone help me? When I was pregnant I found out by accident that the osteomyelitis that damaged my Spinal cord in childhood was caused by MRSA. I went in for a routine Op for my Kidney reflux and immediatelyafterwards started getting the symptoms of this. I was only 12, my parents and I were never informed. This is still causing me back problems 19 years later. II wish to get an admission and an apology. Where do I begin? thanks

MRSA - Cover - up?

Google for - Biant Bush - and the top result is my letters to the British Medical Journal quoting Japanese research proving that MRSA succumbs to vital "C" (sodium L-ascorbate)
'Google' for - MRSA Bush - and the result is No 3.
MRSA is a non-event but as Dr Klenner stated "Some physicians would stand by and see their
patients die rather than use ascorbic acid."

MRSA & heart disease.

In addition to my note about MRSA killed by vital "C" (it is not a vitamin at all because it is incorporated into body tissues e.g. collagen and phagocytes) MRSA almost certainly helps to damage the heart. Nutritional Preventive CardioRetinometry(R) is expected to prove that so called 'vitamin' C ends cardiovascular disease as is clearly seen in sequential photographs of diminishing cholesterol in the retinal arteries with improved nutrition and I am training optometrists and doctors in this. When retinal arterial disease is building (it exactly mirrors coronary - heart - arterial disease) it signals vulnerability to MRSA and every other infection. I agree with Dr Thomas E Levy MD DJD in his new book - Stop America's #1 Killer now" (proving that scuvy is the cause of heart disease) amd Dr Uffe Ravnskov MD PhD in his book "The Cholesterol Myths - Exposing the fallacy that saturated fat causes heart disease." CardioRetinometry(R) supports both perfectly. 'High cholesterol' people ar... read more

I had been battling a sinus infection since december. I had my first endoscope surgery in march. Still have the infection. my dr did another surgery last week and is concerned of the mrsa I was around. antiobotics are not touching the infection i am keeping in my sinuses. Can you please let me know something about this bug and how long it actually takes to get the results on this. also is it possible to keep it in there for months... please help anyway you can .. thank you

...and came out with having MRSA in 2000. I underwent tests over a period of a few months and it apparently gone so when I went back to the same hospital in Jan 2005 I didn`t think about telling them about the MRSA I had as I thought it had gone so I was allowed to roam around the wards, toilets, etc. When I gave birth about three days later the midwife said to me that I had had MRSA, and I explained to her that it had gone (I had previous swabs taken), she went ballistic and ordered me to have more swabs done after I had the baby and for the baby to be tested, thankfully the baby was clear but I still had MRSA in my nose?.
I don`t understand it I`m 30, very hygenic and can`t understand why this bug has come back, I have never had hospitalization (apart from having babies) so why did it go and come back?, also am I just a carrier as I have heard so many horrible storys reguarding this bug that it`s left me feeling a bit lost, please help.

Had is the word its been 7 months and it has not shown up at all. I have posted here a few times, I had gotten MRSA from my c-section when I had my twins.I then spread it to the twins and my 2 year old.We moved twice and threw everything away, still didnt work. Then last year we almost lost our baby girl twin to it when she caught a cold and then the boil broke out and we couldnt control it. Well its gone now, we couldnt afford all the vitamins and the expensive garlic every month, that all of you where taking. I am not a big sales person, but I did join this company cause the only way I could buy the product was to go through someones link. You just have to sign up as a customer. Its silver solution. Its the only patent pending silver out there. Here is the link to go read about it. We have not had MRSA for 7 months, I never posted earlier cause I wanted to make sure it works and it does. You can even put it on bandaids like we did when the boils would start and within 2 weeks of t... read more

Firstly I would like to say what a fantasic job you have all been doing.

I have just set up the Clostridium Difficile Support Group and as we are all working for the same cause thought you might be interested to hear about my experience.

I lost my Grandmother last year after she contracted C diff. After a long battle with the hospital in question I must admit I finally feel that I am getting somewhere and changes are being made at this particular hospital. I cannot go into too much detail at this point but wondered if any of you have tried this approach of working with your local hospital because I do think that this can work. I know that you have been meeting with some high powered officials and have been doing a wonderful job but have any of you thought about this approach. If we all try and work with our local hospitals we can make a difference.

l posted about two weeks ago saying that l had been told that l have mrsa in my vagina, l was at the time waiting for results of swabs and urine test to come back.Well they came back and l now know l have mrsa in my nose, throat, urine, vagina, armpits, and groin areas.l have been to the hospital to see my urologist because l was booked in to be admitted on Mon 30th April. My uro dr rang for my results and it's a good thing he did, as l mentioned my results came to my gp only on Tuesday of last week. So when my uro dr read my results he told me that he has to cancell my operation because l have mrsa on my skin and he needs to get in touch with the infection control team to see what they suggest l do, he sent me out of the room which l thought was odd as what was he going to say l wonder.
l was given a solution to wash my hair and body in for 5 days, and some cream to put in my nose 3x a day for 5 days, and powder to use under my arms and in my groins for the same time. l finished t... read more

C Diff & MRSA

3 months ago my mother had a triple heart bypass.
Five weeks ago she was admitted to hospital after suffering severe stomach pains complete with v & d.
The consultant told my father that my mother had gastrointeritis. He asked what about this C-Diff and was then told this is what she has its the same thing.
This was treated with anti-biotics for a few days and she was sent home. Two weeks ago the hospital that did the thb said she no longer needed to attend there anymore. Even though she had told them she was getting severe pain in one of the wounds at the top of her leg it was swollen and red.
They said it was probably just fluid and maybe she would need to be seen by someone in six months just see how it goes. Anyway last week this wound started to weep badly causing even more pain. And she was again admitted to hospital. One week on she is stuck in there again.
And was supposed to be transferred to the hospital that did the thb. We were told it was just an infection and this... read more

Mrsa - Maggot Cure

Found this on the BBC News Site:-

Maggot cure for 'unbeatable' bug

Maggots can clean up infections

Maggots may be the answer to antibiotic-resistant infections, say doctors.
They have found that maggots have been able to clear up methcillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) - the bug which has defeated most other drugs and has become a major problem in many of the country's hospitals.

Researchers at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend, Wales, say they have found that swabs of MRSA-infected wounds which have been treated with maggots have come back negative.

It is not fully understood how the maggots work.

But there are three main theories - they either produce anti-bacterial agents, suck up bacteria or change the acidity of an infection.

Maggot history

Maggots were widely used for medicinal peurposes at the beginning of the century.

But with the advent of antibiotics in the 1940s, their use died out.

Now, the rise of antibiotic-r... read more

MRSA & CDiff

On 17th November, 2006 our mother died in Epsom General Hospital after having a back operation following a fall. She died from MRSA in which the consultant who operated admitted that she contracted it in the operating theatre the second person in a week!
On 17th March, 2007 exactly 4 months later our father died in Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford after contracting CDiff of which at the time we were not informed. We only found out from the Registrar when registering his death.
As you can imagine we as a family are devasted losing both our parents in such a short space of time, and especially when these deaths have been caused by lack of care and cleanliness in our hospitals.
Is there anyone who can tell us if we can do anything about this, possible suing for negligence.
