MRSA, MRSA Me



So much has been written about the 100,000 people who die each year from hospital-acquired infections that by now we're almost numb to the statistic. Believe me, I know. This summer, it took three doctors, three months, and a lot of insistence to determine that my recurring and painful "spider bites" were actually MRSA. I learned first-hand that while the public rushes to learn about the latest health scares, hospitals themselves are inclined to ignore the hype. What most hospitals have missed until recently is that HAIs go well beyond patient safety; they cost hospitals money--and lots of it.
