Hi there. Thank you for posting your question with XXXXXXX I will do my best to help you.
No. Do not worry at all about anything contagious. Your poor mother was impacted and had overflow incontinance. This is a common enough phenominin in older, sometimes bedridden, people. I am so sorry.
I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.
Dr Andrew Rynne.
