This investigation revealed that as many as 8,000-12,000 Canadians die every year after being infected by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, infections they contracted while in the hospital. Canadian hospitals offer little protection against such infections and there is no requirement that they report cases to the authorities. By contrast, the team traveled to the Netherlands and discovered that Dutch hospitals have virtually eradicated infections from these bacteria by means of much more aggressive programs of sanitation and control.
