So, apart from coyote's sly wit (which, honestly, I appreciated), this thread is closed?

Phil suffers from the most extreme form of Philosis: a hybrid of philobacterium philosium v. salfordis, and aeromonas hydrophila ( responsible for necrotizing fasciitis).
The result is a flesh-eating disease, where the afflicted party fixates on eating the flesh, particularly of the gluteus maximus, of prepubertal boys.
Phil has been caught several times in various Manchester area swimming baths, where he stalks boys showering nude, and tackles them, holding their legs while he licks, bites, and worries their bare buttocks. Each time a judge has released Phil, who argues that he is suffering from a disease, and not in control of his actions.
Parents' groups have signed petitions, asking that Phil be ordered to seek treatment, or at least be incarcerated if he refuses to do so.

To limit the spread of staph, including MRSA, in school settings, IDPH recommends the following with respect to policy, infection control, and education/increased awareness:

1. Policy

The school health service should take an active role in evaluating students with skin lesions, including lesions that resemble a “bug bite,” or other pustule skin lesions that appear to be infected. It is recommended that any unusual skin lesion or other draining wound be considered as potentially infectious to others and infection control measures should be in place to prevent the spread of infection. Students with any open, weeping, or pustule lesion on the skin (other than acne) should be promptly referred to a primary care provider for consultation.

MRSA generally does not spread through a shared classroom environment. However, transmission of MRSA infection among student athletes is well described, and can have substantial impact on students and schools. Therefore, a policy for active surveillance for skin infections should be implemented by the school nurse, school physician, and/or director, coach or trainer of sports teams (especially those teams involved in contact sports) to expedite referral for medical evaluation. Encourage coaches and/or athletic trainers to assess student athletes for any unusual skin lesions before practice or competition, and athletes to report skin lesions to coaches.

When MRSA infection is suspected, athletes should be referred to their primary care provider for evaluation and treatment. Following the medical evaluation, confirm that a treatment plan for the student athlete is in place. Those infected with MRSA or other staph infections should follow their healthcare provider’s treatment plan, including completing antibiotic therapy, if an antibiotic was prescribed.(Note: IDPH has developed guidance for healthcare providers regarding MRSA infections, available at http://www.idph.state.il.us/health/infect/MRS... .)

Because bandages can shift or dislodge with activity or when wet, students with draining wounds should not be allowed to participate in practices, games, or physical education classes that involves contact with others until the wound has stopped draining. A more stringent requirement, complete healing, may be recommended for wrestlers. The student may participate in non-contact athletic activities such as weight-lifting, running, or jogging provided he/she observes good hygienic practices (e.g., washing hands) and the wound can be covered at all times with a clean, dry, intact bandage taped on all 4 sides. In addition, IDPH rules prohibit use of licensed swimming pools by anyone with a skin infection, regardless of whether or not it is bandaged.

If MRSA is diagnosed in a student athlete, the school should evaluate the possibility of other cases among their teammates. Clusters of MRSA infections (i.e., two or more laboratory-confirmed cases during a 14 day period) should be promptly reported to the local health department, as required by Illinois Department of Public Health Rules and Regulations effective March 3, 2008. Please note that skin lesions are caused by numerous causes other than MRSA, and that self-reports of MRSA diagnoses are sometimes incorrect. Definitive confirmation of MRSA infection typically requires review of laboratory records or direct communication with a physician’s office. In addition, two or more MRSA cases in a school do not necessarily mean transmission has occurred in the school setting. Local health departments can provide assistance in confirming MRSA diagnoses, evaluating the likelihood of facility-based transmission, and recommending control measures.
