I posted this question in another place but haven't heard from anyone.  I work in and around sick people delivering suction, trach, beds, wheelchairs, commodes, etc.  I also have to clean it when it comes in.  Is there anyone that is in that type of invorinment whether with a relative or working?

I am a Crit Care/ER nurse and I never had a problem for over 26 years in picking up anything from a patient.  It is a matter of using good infection control techniques...............wash you hands...............over and over.
 I would check with your Dr. re your exposure to this type of patient and your own health problems.
I do not have pericarditis.
