Measures hospital Nijmegen due to MRSA
The Canisius Wilhelmina Hospital in Nijmegen allows scheduled recordings in two sections as much as possible, because the MRSA bacterium is found.
Four patients have the bacterium. Three of the infected patients have now been discharged from the hospital.
The two departments, to which the measure applies, have four specialties: plastic surgery, urology, surgery and gynecology. “All emergencies continue”, and had a ziekenhuiswoordvoerster Monday know.
It is not known how many persons by the measure to be taken and for how long remain in force. “We look at the day-to-day,” said the spokeswoman.
Most antibiotics do not help against MRSA. However, there are alternatives for treatment. For healthy people, MRSA is not dangerous. However, for people with weakened immune systems.
