"Troubling New Report on Hospital Infections ..."

Excerpt:
"The report, “Healthcare-Associated Infections,” found that the percentage of hospitals reporting to the Leapfrog Hospital Survey and achieving zero infections has declined dramatically since 2015. This is true for all five of the infections examined on the Survey, including Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI), Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI), Surgical Site Infection after Colon Surgery (SSI: Colon), Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and Clostridium difficile (C. diff)."
If your illness was preceded by use of a medication, e.g., an antibiotic, please fill out an FDA Adverse Event Report at http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/default.htm

Thanks for posting, the reality is scary!!!! The Peggy Lillis Foundation just asked for signatures on this very issue, they are pushing to have this reviewed

I keep saying of the LAB's were reporting the numbers would be SKY HIGH! Looking at Admissions VS Hospital acquired is also a BIG ISSUE!
