Her doctor mentioned that, carrying it and that a large percentage of the population actually can carry MRSA. Can you pass it only during an outbreak? If her stepdaughter carries it versus it only being in a wound, how does one prevent that? Never sharing towels, etc?
True, and good questions. You can google MRSA colonization versus infection, and you will find the answers that you need that way. A search of MRSA wound infection control should lead you to preventing the spread...I'd like to caution you that general searching of MRSA could lead you to a lot of horror stories, but what they may not make clear is that a lot of times these are people who are frail, elderly, extremely young, or immunocompromised in some way.
