Four Patients At Cedars-Sinai Infected With 'Superbug'
From Christine O' Donnell:
The patients who may have been infected would have undergone endoscopic procedures to treat cancer and liver diseases between August of 2014 to mid-February.
On Feb 19th, hospital halted procedures. That's when FOX 11 reported about Superbug outbreak at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Seven people were infected there, two have passed away from CRE or carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae.
The CDC says that If the infection spreads to a person's blood-stream, there is a 50% chance that patient will die.
"Cedars-Sinai's infection-control specialists are continuing to review and monitor to ensure the highest level of options to ensure the highest level of safety for its patients,'' according to the hospital.
