Have you ever had a fear of entering a hospital for what the doctor told you would be a routine procedure only to learn that when you were all done you caught an infection. Or perhaps your child was playing at the local playground and then came down with a skin rash only to find out it was some type of infectious disease.
These are real fears that many people have, but most are not even aware of the potential dangers or what preventive measures could be taken to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Today we have as our guest Dr. Roberto Posada, MD, an expert in infectious disease to talk about S. Aureus or more commonly known as a Staph Infection.
