Well darn Green,please pardon me if I offend you with this advice for it is not my intention but for your own safety and health I have to say this,my big mouth and honesty,sorry before hand.
As a health care prof for many many years and even more important a caregiver for numerous adult family members who chose to dedicate their life to alcoholism and not give 2 hoots about their health until it was far too late I suggest that maybe its time to appeal to the courts for 1st a 72 hr admit for eval for the psych problems and then for a power of attorney for your daughter.
Again please dont take offense but it seems she is not making sound decisions here regarding her health isues. Now I am a firm believer that each of us has the right to chose when to stop treatment based on quality of life issues and Im not here to debate those but this can and does create health issues and safety issues for those caring for her and living with her.
Staph and most especially MRSA is highly contagious and extremely difficult to treat. Many lose the battle even with agressive treatment and she is chosing none. These do not sound like proper and healthy decisions.
I have no idea how old she is but she is your daughter and you now doubt care for her and this must be really hard for you to watch happen.
You have a proffessional in your corner already if they are thinking long term skilled nursing. Utilize that to your advantage and if she wont help herself maybe its time you either do it yourself or go for third party health surrogate if you think it would cause too much bad feelings between the two of you.
Just my honest opinion and my prayers are sure with you.
