User :   My son, who is graduating from AIT training next week put off going to the infirmary in fear that he wouldn't graduation. Turns out that he has a steph infection that has now spread all over his body. He finally went to the infirmary and they gave him antibiotics to be taken twice a day. My question is this: What do I need to do to prevent my family from getting infrected in addition, we will be traveling up to VA to see my dying mother who is immuno compromised. I have already gotten him a separate hotel room as I hear that showers should not be shared with steph. Can you please give me advice as to how to protect everyone?
Doctor :   ya sure we will assist you
Doctor :   what infection he has? can you be clear please
Doctor :   and what antibiotics he is on? how many days treatment he has taken?
