You would think that the hospital would be the last place you would become infected with a dangerous bacteria.

But that's not the case. Across the country, thousands of hospital patients are becoming infected with a drug resistant bacteria known as MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) - many times resulting in death.

And it should not happen - hospitals should be one of the most cleanest and sterile environments around, but the fact is that most MRSA infections are caused by a visit to a hospital.

A nationwide study finds that drug-resistant staph is now the most common skin infection seen in city emergency rooms.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria — often called "staph." Staph bacteria are generally harmless unless they enter the body through a cut or other wound, and even then they often cause only minor skin problems in healthy people.

But in older adults and people who are ill or have weakened immune systems, ordinary staph infections can cause serious illness called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA.

Staph infections, including MRSA, generally start as small red bumps that resemble pimples, boils or spider bites. These can quickly turn into deep, painful abscesses that require surgical draining. Sometimes the bacteria remain confined to the skin.

But they can also burrow deep into the body, causing potentially life-threatening infections in bones, joints, surgical wounds, the bloodstream, heart valves and lungs.

If you or a loved one, has become infected with MRSA contracted from a hospital in Sacramento, or other medical treatment center, the hospital or center has failed to properly disinfect and should be held responsible.
