something to chew on.. stay away from hosps

On March 7, 2003 two middle-aged men with undiagnosed cases of SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) brought from Asia went to the hospital in two different cities. In Toronto, this caused an outbreak that killed 44, infected another 330, and forced hospitals to close. In Vancouver, according to a government report, “robust worker safety and infection control culture” enabled the hospital there to prevent the disease from spreading. One hospital thwarted an epidemic, while another made deadly mistakes.

Vancouver General isolated the patient within five minutes of his arrival, recognizing the possible seriousness of his symptoms. But the Toronto hospital kept its SARS patient waiting 16 hours in its crowded emergency room. Two patients waiting nearby contracted SARS.

A government report later concluded that for the hospital overcome by SARS, “infection control was not a high priority.” Eventually, 77% of the people who contracted SARS there got it while working, visiting or being treated in a hospital.

Similarly, whether Americans die of Ebola will depend largely on what hospitals do when the first victims unknowingly carrying the virus are admitted

That is while  I go out of my way to avoid hospitals if I possibly can.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

When you go to hospital, watch for the phlebotomist that takes your blood. They go from patient to patient in a ward, wear the same gloves, and use the same rubber band to tie off. These are the people who spread Mersa in hospitals. That is why whole wards are affected. They change gloves between wards, not between patients. Some don't even wear gloves!!!! If you have to go to hospital, you need to watch everything that goes on, because YOU are the only person advocating for you.
