There are so many kids who are contracting staph infections. We must prevent the spread of this disease if we are to protect our children. The school system will not be a reliable source due to the shortage of nurses. The American Heart Association has requested that all health care providers be supportive in helping parents in understanding staph infection. They are dealing with an increase of strep throat as well. Many young children need to be tested at least once a month for the viral infection.
Many Emergency Room Doctors are prescribing Penicillin to most of the patients. This is a great danger due to the possibility of an allergic reaction. The staph infection is painful, but it does not compare to pediatric cardiac arrest in the field setting. Please take control of your child’s health and make informed decisions on how to keep them very healthy.
