Luis Fábregas of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review had a great article about the superbug in case you missed it. Here’s an excerpt:
My phone rang often this week when the Tribune-Review published stories about a nasty killer germ making the rounds in the nation’s health care facilities.
A concerned wife asked whether her unresponsive, hospitalized husband could be infected by the so-called CRE bacteria because he isn’t responding to powerful antibiotics. The father of an 18-month-old boy with sickle cell anemia asked whether the superbug was found in Children’s Hospital.
