A second Los Angeles hospital is reporting that patients have been infected with an antibiotic-resistant "superbug" linked to a type of widely used medical scope.
Four patients are infected with the bug, known as CRE, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center said Wednesday.
Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center reported a similar outbreak two
weeks go. In those cases, seven patients, two of whom later died, were
sickened with the superbug after undergoing endoscopic procedures.
Cedars said in a statement that it halted such procedures after
learning about the UCLA outbreak and launched its own investigation. The
hospital said the germ may have been transmitted through a
duodenoscope, a fiber-optic instrument made by Olympus Corp., during
procedures performed between last August and January. READ MORE
