I have mushroom or fungus-like mushroom growing in and around my rhubarb.  Is this good and how can I get rid of it and can my rhubarb be saved?

It is actually a good sign. Mushrooms like to grow in good soil. A little bit of a fungicide put on the ground where they are growing will get rid of them, if you want to.

The rhubarb is fine to eat, just make sure you don't accidentally harvest the mushrooms with the rhubarb.
