It was not HA-mrsa, doctors told him he had mrsa in the nose and it had spread to his bones.

Hi FoxyLady:

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I recommend seeing if his physician would visit with you about your brother's case. Below is information I found on community acquired MRSA. Sounds like your brother case would be more uncommon to have such serious complications. Did he have other health issues?

Community-Acquired MRSA

The vast majority of MRSA infections occurring outside of the health care setting are noninvasive. These community-acquired infections generally take the form of skin infections and are more easily treated.

In the CDC study, people with what appeared to be community-acquired invasive MRSA infections had better outcomes than those with health care acquired infections.

"Most severe infections are health care related, but that is not to trivialize community-associated infections," she says. "The vast majority of community infections are noninvasive, but our study shows that invasive MRSA disease does occur in people without established health care risk factors."
