Re: [IP] Site infections

  Bingo! This is exactly what happened to Melissa...Her first ( and worst)
site infection was precisely that- staph aureus- which was also present in her
nose (which they cultured at the same time)....She had 2 more site infections,
one almost mild enough to skip antibiotics ( but we opted for caution) & the
last one caught early enough to not need antibiotics...Three times seemed to
"do the trick" as far as convincing her that she is NEVER to do an insertion
without adhering to proper hygienic procedures.....Close to a year since she's
had a problem....
