Fight Staph Infections, Inc. 
My battle with a hospital acquired MRSA infection
SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER 08


Hello Everyone!

Do hope you are doing fine these days.  We are doing great in South Carolina.  I recently had surgery on my hand, and that has been keeping me from my website.  Next month I will be having surgery on my shoulder.  The doctor said my Arthritis has deteriorated the Rotary Cuff in my shoulder so now the bone is pressing against my Collar Bone, pain!  This surgery is very scary.  You never know when that MRSA will apear in your joints and do its damage, especially since my knee still has some bacteria in it.   This time I know more about MRSA, and I plan to use every resource available to me. 

I will let my readers know more after my surgery.

Please pray for me.

Thanks,

Bonnie

In doing my research, I discovered an article from Consumer Union that I want to pass on to my readers.

Last year, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services CMS) adopted new rules that will end payments to hospitals for the extra care required to treat patients harmed by certain preventable hospital acquired conditions.  Now the agency has proposed expanding the list of preventable conditions covered by the non-payment rules.
