Anyone know if it's possible to get MRSA from oxygen tubing on the

ambulance or at the hospital. I think this may have happened to me.

Is there a high possibility of this ?

If the stuff was used more than once I think the answer would be yes.

MRSA is a bad deal. It can be transferrred from patien to patient by uncleanliness. Rubber tubing and gloves can transfer it from patient to patient. Once you get it, you always have it.

It goes dormant.

Yes - - There may be a problem isolating what the actual source is.

Will the hospital tell you? (Doubtful, unless really pressed) Your "on staff" doctor should know if the hospital has a problem.

If you were in a hospital room that was not completely disinfected, that's a possible cause.

The ambulance may be harder to get information about.

I am still recovering from a non-MRSA staff infection five months later. You get a bad staff infection and you have a big problem. My foot is still healing after the surgery. They thought my infection was MRSA because it looked so bad. One month on a pick line with daily infusions of antibiotics. Now I am having to go back to the doctor because the brace I am using is not helping that much and my heel feels funny and swells up every time I walk. If I knew these infections were so common I would not let any doctor operate on me unless I was dying. If you go to a hospital or doctor and come away with a staff infection is that malpractice? I would like to murder the doctor who gave me the infection and then denied it.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
