My son contracted MRSA in the ICU at Children's Hospital after a quite massive abdominal surgery at 2 months old. I was under the impression that MRSA was a staph infection that only negatively affected young sick children or elderly people. He was never given any meds, we were just in isolation room (so annoying but necessary) for the next 5 months that he was hospitalized. He then had to have 3 negative tests before he could be taken off the isolation list. I was never told that MRSA could cause other medical problems or anything like that!
