My 88 year old mother is in a nursing home and was seen by a Bio-Medical technician ordered by her doctor. The nurse at the home could only tell me it has to do with her bowels and could be contagious. They do not have her in isolation. When I went to see her today after I used the bathroom in her room and kissed her is when the nurse told me. Her doctor told me to ask the nurse. The only info she gave me was it has to do with her bowels and could be contagious. The nurse wrote down the name of the condition for me. Now I am concerned about myself. I am 68. I tried looking up the word on Google and could not find it. Should I contact my doctor? I don't have an appointment until next year.
