    Six people in Colorado recently became infected with a "nightmare" superbug that until now, has mostly been limited to people in hospitals, according to a new report. The new cases suggest the superbug may have spread outside of health care facilities.


    The superbug is known as carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, a family of bacteria that are difficult to treat because they are resistant to powerful antibiotics. So far, nearly all cases of CRE infections have been seen in people who stay health care facilities, or who have been treated with certain medical procedures or devices, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Actually it's probably regular patients who leave AMA after contracting the bacteria. My wife works as a charge nurse/case manager in the emergency room of a large hospital. This has been a fear they have had for a long time. Once the germs adapt better to living outside of a medical center things will get a lot worse.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    My lack of knowledge opinion is that maybe if "eco-friendly" cleaners (especially in hospitals) is replaced with products that actually kill bacteria and germs the problem might go away.
