Fight Staph Infections, Inc. 
My battle with a hospital acquired MRSA infection

 

MRSA and the Hospitals

I am a victim of a staph infection.   On March 2006, I had a Total Knee Replacement.  I was told everything was great.  Four days after my release, I was readmitted to the hospital.  I was told it was MRSA.  I had three more surgeries.  Now I walk with a brace and a walker.  My aim and goal in life is to inform the public about the dangers of staph infections, and to protect themselves against MRSA.  If you would like a copy of my brochure, "Preventing Staph Infections in Hospitals", please email us at fightstaph@charter.net
