Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
You could be direct and ask her if she has staph or MRSA
As that is not an STD that would not be so personal and would be an appropriate issue to your safety ..
Staph or MRSA are contact transmistted and she could be a risk to you if that ..
So distinguishing that she is not a risk as to contact would be an appropriate issue for you to discuss
Again staph or MRSA are of category where a person should not work with patients if they have that ..it is a "CONTACT PRECAUTION" category
I hope that this is helpful for you
Let me know if you have further questions or concerns
I will be happy to get back with you
