Report clears California hospital in infection outbreak

Fresno Bee, April 3, 2008
California health investigators have found no health violations in an inspection of Fresno-based Saint Agnes Medical Center following an infection outbreak in the hospital's cardiac surgery unit. At least 12 Saint Agnes patients contracted life-threatening bacterial infections between January 2007 and September 2007. Hospital officials said the infection rate returned to normal since then, and current patients are not at risk for infections.
