      Infections and the flu are very worrisome for PH patients. Scientist, Stephanie Taylor, discovered in her research that dry air is the primary culprit of infections, especially in hospital settings. Her inexpensive solution is an instrument called a hygrometer. This is an interesting article worth reading.

      Have you ever contracted an infection during a hospital stay? How do you protect your own home from the flu? What are your thoughts about Stephanie Taylor’s research and her theory about how to protect against infection and the flu?

      Great article to find, Colleen! I always get so grossed out when thinking about just how contaminated things really are. We never know all that we are touching! It’s good to know the science behind making sure things are as clean as possible or at least protecting ourselves through it all! I’ll have to look into this . I have had VRE and Cdiff from hospital settings
      Both were terrible. One of my aunts also contacted MRSA

        Brittany,
        I thought it was interesting and what she says makes sense. Fear of what could be lingering in a hospital is bad enough but what really makes me nervous is the ER. I’ve sat in ER waiting rooms having a panic attack watching parents allow children to crawl around the floor. Agh, I can’t even think about it!

          Colleen,
          As I’ve been admitted since Sunday I can’t even begin to tell you how gross those floors are. Especially with the vomiting, diarrhea, bacterial infections, mucus, etc that is all over that place literally everywhere. Someone’e pocket book needs a good sponge bath after that.
