February 27, 2017 10:21 AM | John Kulin (Administrator)

The Washington Post (2/25, Naqvi, 11.43M) reported “rising infections caused by a type of bacteria resistant to multiple antibiotics is causing longer hospitalizations and may mean a higher risk of death for children in the United States, according to a new study” published in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society. The study “found that 3 out of 5 children admitted to hospitals already had an antibiotic-resistant infection – suggesting these infections are spreading more often in the community.” Additional coverage is provided by HealthDay (2/24, Mozes, 21K).
