Superbugs are a problem in many hospitals and MRSA can be life-threatening, especially if you are already ill, to begin with. Wipe down your bed, table, call buttons, doorknobs and other surfaces periodically with bleach. Keep a bottle of sanitizer and antibacterial soap with you at all times. Wash your hands before you eat and after using the restroom. Also, encourage visitors to wash their hands as soon as they enter your room.
