Last week my family and I (incl. a 6 month old baby and 4 year old) went on vacation with my parents, brother and his family. 2 days in my father, who is old and in bad health, found an infection on his leg. The hospital took tissue samples for testing but would not have results for a week, so my father returned to the beach house and continued to interact with the kids. A week later--today--we found out that his infection was MRSA. Since that time both of my children have been in daycare situations. Do I need to pull them out? Is there a conclusive test to determine if my kids are carriers? I've put in a call to their pediatrician but I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with this?
