According to an article written in Oct.2010 in the Daily Finance, hospitals have become very dangerous places to spend time. Even if surgery is successful, we need to think about the superbugs transmitted that can cause serious illnesses or possible death.
By definition, superbugs are antibiotic resistant bacteria. And as stated by Dr. Philip Tierno, Director of Clinical Microbiology and Immunology at the Langone Medical Center at New York University, 2.5 million infections occur annually worldwide which result in about 100,000 needless deaths and costing billions of dollars in additional treatments.
Some of these deadly superbugs causing these life threatening infections are MRSA, Streptococcus, Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus, Resistant Klebsiella Pneumonia, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, E. coli, Acinetobacter Baumannii, C.diff, and one of the most feared newcomers called NDM-1. NDM-! originated in New Dehli, which affects the gut or urinary tract, according to the article. These superbug infections can cause very serious illnesses or possibly kill you.
The article also mentions the fact that there are other products such as antimicrobials and bleach that can destroy superbugs. But they can take a long time to work. Bleach, in particular, is toxic, so many doctors and nurses do not like to use it. In addition, bleach can be costly since after a certain amount of use, hospitals have to shut down wings to repair rooms and equipment.
