In the Headlines
“No population is more vulnerable tomulti drug-resistance than thoseadmitted to hospital wards”.
“Of the resistant organisms nowproliferating around the world, nonecarry more potential fordestruction and threaten existingmedical interventions than theemergence of hospital-acquired"super-infections".
“In the United States alone, some14,000 individuals are infected anddie each year from drug-resistantmicrobes picked up in hospital”.

“ 
So far, current preventivemethods emphasizing hygiene andaggressive infection-controlmeasures have reaped only dubiousbenefits and at best, only slowedthe spread of resistant bacteria.”
“This means that commonplacemedical procedures once previouslytaken for granted – hipreplacements, dental surgery andcyst removals – could conceivablybe consigned to medical limbo. Therepercussions are almostunimaginable.”
“An added concern is that hospital-acquired infections rarely stay put.Ample evidence would suggest thatmany resistant infections erupted inhospital settings before migratingto the
 
community at large.”
