SUPER BUGS are created when a bacterium develops resistance to the antibiotic designed to kill it. When antibiotics are used inappropriately, they kill susceptible bacteria and create the perfect environment for resistant strains to grow, multiply, mutate and spread. Hospitals, where antibiotic use is high and invasive medical procedures are performed on patients with weakened defenses, provide an ideal breeding ground for these virulent, insidious bacteria to thrive. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers and hand washing can help prevent the spread between hospital workers, visitors and patients. But they can't stop a patient from being infected by an improperly cleaned table tray or blood-pressure cuff.
