Discharging infected patients

There are very good reasons for discharging patients home before their infection is fully resolved, cost to the client being a significant one, but it will always have the potential for causing problems.

The key to successful outcome is make sure that the client has all the information they need in a way that is easy to understand so as to be able to both give the best care to their pt and minimise the risk to the owner and family.

Information should be given directly and also in writing to take away, and access to advice should be available. All of the information given should be consistent so as to minimise the risk of confusion, and should conform to generally accepted standards. Advice on the disposal of dressings and other clinical waste should be given.

I am very pleased to be serving as an advisor to the Bella Moss Foundation. BMF has for several years been a unique international resource for pet owners worldwide who desperately need information and support regarding MRSA and its effect on their pets and family. The Bella Moss Foundation has now taken on a new goal to broaden their resources in America. I look forward to helping them to raise awareness in the U.S and Canada and will strive to improve the collaboration between the veterinary and human medicine professions in North America.
