Last Saturday my 5 year old grandson and I went to see an elderly neighbor in a convalescent hsopital. She has lung cancer and an abdominal mass that is cancer as well. My grandson had a small cut on his finger. I am not sure that she touched him at all.
I have to ask him. Tonight when I went to the inpatient hospital she was transferred to on Saturday. /Her room was under quaranteed and I had to put on a gown and rubber gloves to go in her room. Afterward the nurse told me she has a mrsa infection in the urinary tract. My question is IF she touched my grandson and he got mrsa infection how long would it take for it to show up? We both washed our hands with hand sanitizer before and after seeing her. Should we worry about a transferance of the infection?
