While I almost have to laugh at any medical professional who questions 
whether patients treated by MRSA infected people are at any increased 
risk of MRSA infection (germ theory of medicine anyone?) I would raise a 
more practical question that reverse the issue again:

Why is anyone really concerned anymore about MRSA? MRSA infection rates 
are so high that anyone who empirically treats with oxacillin or a ceph 
is taking grave risks, vanco therapy is obviously the first choice in 
such infections, and with that MRSA become just another bug.
