Hospitals marshal resources to wipe out MRSA
USA Today, December 3, 2007
Public attention is once again on MRSA. And hospitals nation-wide are stepping up their fight against all types of infections, especially superbugs that have been found to be more common and more deadly than previously believed. A recent federal report estimated that nearly 19,000 people died in the U.S. in 2005 after being infected with MRSA--more than the number killed by HIV/AIDS.
