Description

This special report exposed the prevalence of deadly hospital germs passed on to patients by dirty medical equipment and workers who ignore basic precautions such as hand-washing. The report detailed the failure of the health care system to meet its top priority - keeping patients safe. There is no standard way of documenting hospital-acquired infections, and so patients don't know what sort of record their hospital has. These sorts of infections, the most well - known is Staph, are becoming increasingly common.
