Contact precautions-the correct answer is c: contact precautions. the resistant bacteria remain alive for up to three days post death. therefore, contact precautions must still be implemented. also, the body needs to be labeled so that the funeral home staff can protect themselves as well. gown and gloves are required.mrsa stands for methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus. it causes an infection that is resistant to several common antibiotics. there are two types of infection. hospital-associated mrsa happens to people in healthcare settings. community-associated mrsa happens to people who have close skin-to-skin contact with others, such as athletes involved in football and wrestling.
