Detailed Answer:
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It may not be safe to transport…

A second opinion is not necessary here – it is a laboratory diagnosis (Bacteria cultured) and chance of error is nearly non-existent.

MRSA itself is difficult to treat.
So is kidney infection…
Septicemia and shock (Falling BP and multi-organ failure) are threats…
Especially so in Diabetic…

He needs to stay in a Multi-specialty Tertiary Care Hospital
Patience and perseverance are the need…
Outcome is generally favorable…

Take care     
Wishing all well
God bless
Good luck
