My nephew is 65 years old, long history of COPD. He was hospitalized 2 weeks ago, H1/N1 flu virus, diagnosed several days later with pneumonia and within the last several days with MRSA in his lungs. The hospital appears to be leaning towards releasing him in a few days. Since we are roommates, I'm concerned with the possibility of becoming infected. It is my understanding the MRSA infection can be controlled but not eliminated. Since my nephew is prone to long coughing fits from COPD, could he still potentially be contagious at some point after he is released from the hospital?
