Episode Description:

Their real names are difficult to pronounce, and they become known by acronyms such as MRSA or shortened names like C.diff. They are drug-resistant bacteria, often called “superbugs,” and are a major source of infections that can lead to serious illness and even death. The Centers for Disease Control says these ‘bugs’ cause one out of every seven infections caught in hospitals. They are now being detected beyond hospitals – in schools and other frequently visited locations in communities. How do these “superbugs” arise? What are the risks of these bugs? And what can individuals do to protect themselves?
Guest: Dr. Alfred DeMaria, Mass. Department of Public Health
