Those of you who read the medical episodes that Bushrat and I went through, know that the only infections he contracted were from the hospital. This was during a period of over two years of open wounds.
Another laughable but serious thing was the home health nurse who used to come and change Bushrat’s bandages. She would drop stuff on the floor and continue to use it. When I objected, she said “Oh well this is not a sterile situation anyway…” I told them not to come back. I changed his bandages two and three times a day for years and never had a problem (until the hospital staph infection and consequent C diff).
Yes, hospitals are a mess. More likely to get sicker and die there than at home.
