40 percent of area population could be carrying MRSA bacteria

Here's how to prevent spreading infections when visiting someone in the hospital:

● Wash your hands before and after visiting the patient. Soap and hand sanitizer are in each NOMC room and in the hallways.

● Stay home if you are sick or have been sick in the past three days.

● Ask hospital staffers if it's safe to take children, food or flowers into the room

● Follow special precautions, if necessary, if the patient is on "isolation precautions"

● Don't contribute to the clutter by bringing too many patient belongings.
