Link between loss of taste and Golden Staph?

My father lost his sense of taste about 3 months ago. He said that everything tasted the same - like cardboard. Sometimes, though, a bit of sweetness comes through. We spoke to his doctor about it and the doctor started giving him Vitamin B injections. He said that this sometimes works. Recently he had to go to hospital because he hurt his leg, it would not stop bleeding and he needed a transfusion. When he first arrived at emergency, they did a nose swab and about 5 days later diagnosed him with Golden Staph. I am wondering whether anyone knows if there is a link between the tastebuds and Golden Staph ... and if so, will he get back his sense of taste once the infection has cleared?
