I mean really. Yes, MRSA is a problem, and it can be very, very stubborn. But the media has latched onto this in its typically parasitic style, milking it for all it's worth (no doubt to reap more advertising dollars), meanwhile scaring the bejeebus out of soccer moms everywhere.
But ya know- if this gets everyone (hey- healthcare pros included) to wash their hands more, what the heck. Maybe there's a bright side to this, but I wish they'd lay off the scare tactics.
