What do you know about MRSA and hospital acquired infections?

Lots.

Mrsa
There are two types of MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staph aureus) infections: hospital-acquired and community acquired. Both are serious, in that MRSA bacteria are resistant to many types of antibiotics, so treatment options are limited. They are also contagious. Don't fool around with MRSA - see a doctor right away.

What could cause Secondary (Acquired) Immunodeficiency coupled with Autoimmunity? Both started at same time. Cancers and infections?(negative 4 HIV)

Immune Dysregulation

Disruption of the process of self/non-self recognition can lead to either immune deficiency (increased susceptibility to infection) or to autoimmunity (increased and pathogenic responses to self-antigens). Many of the genes that create susceptibility to autoimmunity also create susceptibility to immune deficiency.
