Streaming Video - 2010
Rate this:
Around the world, hospitals have become known for something other than healing-in fact, quite the opposite. This program follows the challenges faced by various hospitals, many of them state-of-the-art facilities, that have become hosts to nearly invincible germs. Focusing on the bacteria known as MRSA, the video goes inside French, German, and Dutch hospitals battling the sinister and alarmingly resilient microbe. Viewers learn how vulnerable wounds yield to infections, pneumonia, septicemia, and, in some occurrences, death. Case studies, a history of penicillin, and discussions of hospital cleaning and sterilization procedures are included.
