In brief: Wrong word

"normal" isn't really the proper descriptor - serious infections are never normal.
Mrsa is, however, a *common* problem in nursing homes -- unfortunately. Good facilities are always on the lookout for infections of any kind in their residents, and when they find them, they treat them promptly.
