Saturday, May 18th, 2019 Census today - 18 patients - 4 deaths in the last 24 hours - Most patients were suffering from lung, ovarian and prostate cancers. One patient was suffering from Respiratory failure. Today is the first day I came to know about MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a bacteria that spreads only in healthcare facilities. If someone is admitted in more than 5 healthcare institutions, it has become a practice to test their nares to find this bacteria. One patient had this bacterial infection in the facility today and hence all of us were advised to visit the patient only after protecting ourselves with gown, mask and glove. Our care center has plenty of anti-bacterial solution to remove germs and we keep applying the solution every time we come into contact with a patient. There is always something new to learn in life. I realize that unless it is absolutely critical, it is not advisable to be hospitalized as most healthcare facilities have this bacteria already. A patient can have this bacteria without any symptoms for many years and it may not affect everyone with that bacterial infection. When combined with another health issue, it might cause significant problems.
