I do think that some of the hospitals are trying to make things better. There really needs to be state control on this one and reporting agencies for many hospitals are not sufficiently motivated to change their habits.

Cleanliness for sure is an issue but so it the repeated use of antibiotics.. Although doctors are prescribing less antibiotics over the last 6 or 7 years it is not handling the problem. Seems like when you go into the hospital the use of antibiotics is just huge!
I don't think we will ever get past this MRSA thing until doctors start using antimicrobials other than antibiotics. MRSA is just the tip of the ice berg on what is happening with microbes. Most of that still remains in the hospital while MRSA has moved outside and it is now more prevalent in the community than in hospitals. So hospitals have started checking all who enter for MRSA and then they are isolating them. Meanwhile these MRSA pathogens are spreading through the community. How to control that without acting like Nazi police?

I use to have a number of links to companies that specialize in UV light and ozone applications in hospitals for sanitation but lost them when a computer crashed. I helped my husband provide informaiton to a large hospital in Oregon that he was working on to hook up with these sources. They wanted their new hospital to remain clean. Last time I checked about 5 years ago only a handful of hospitals used this type of equipment in their vents, patient rooms and surgical suites.
