my mother in law found out after it was too late that one of the regular neighbor kids took a swim in her pool who has just been treated for staph infection. His is a really serious case that required surgery to save his finger. they also say that it is one of the worse types of staph that is really very dangerous and can kill.
my husband and i are trying to help her, but i wanted to ask here if shocking one time is going to be enough? Is there anything else that should be done short of draining to pool? i really don't think thats necessary, but this is one thing that really freaks me out. I can deal with a little bit of 'pee' in a pool or worse than that, a 'babe ruth' floater(sorry, i know this is not a preffered topic). But, staph scares me. I just want to make sure that its going to be safe for them over there. i would hate for the other children who swim there to become infected or worse yet my mother in law and father in law who are both older people.
