Let us not forget that the spread of infections is due,in part, to those visitors that are allowed to eat, drink and lay on the beds of patients. These "friends" and "relatives have total disregard for handwashing, isolation precautions and the garbage they leave behind.

Blog: Two infections  
I was in a very reputable hospital in St. Paul, MN for 8 weeks two years ago following an aneurysm burst in my brain stem.  I was in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit in a coma for 5 of those weeks.  Although they definitely saved my life, I also contracted both MRSA and Pseudonamis (spelling is probably incorrect) while in the SICU, which brought my body temperature up to 106 degrees.  It is a miracle that I lived through all this.  It is shocking that even reputable hospitals have such rampant cases of these infections.
