You may want to use V01.89 - Contact with or exposure to other communicable diseases. This code is listed for Conditions classifiable to 001-136 and the code for MRSA is 041.12. There is another code for carrier or suspected carrier of MRSA (V02.54), but it doesn't sound like that's what you have to code.
