Hospital Finds Staph Infections in 15 Staff Members

After finding staph infections in five of its patients in a two month period, the hospital decided to test all operating room staff members. The hospital found that 15 staff members were in fact carrying the common staph bacteria. However, the hospital is not claiming responsibility for the infected patients. They claim that the patients could have become infected through improper home care. All of the infections were non-life threatening. The infected staff members were not allowed to participate in surgeries for a period of a week up to 11 days. Hospital negligence can lead to infections so one may want to contact a medical malpractice attorney for further legal action.
