    The fact that hospital-related antibiotic-resistant bacteria (or “superbugs”, as they’re often called) have cropped up, and for several reasons:

    A) Many hospitals have cut down on laundry, custodial and janitorial services.

    B) Many caretakers of patients have too many patients to care for, and don’t bother to wash, or even sanitize their hands before going from one patient to the next patient, if one gets the drift.

    C) Many people have used antibiotics inappropriately. When a person is prescribed an antibiotic to clear up a bacterial infection, one is supposed to take all of the antibiotic(s) prescribed, exactly as it’s directed on the jar or the bottle, every single day, until all of the antibiotics are used up. Unfortunately, however, many people don’t do that, but instead begin to take the antibiotic as directed, but as soon as the symptoms disappear, they stop taking the antibiotic, instead of taking the full course of the antibiotic(s), like they’re supposed to, in order to make doubly sure that the symptoms don’t come back. When the symptoms re-appear, patients begin taking the antibiotic again, but the symptoms are even worse than before, thus converting an infection that could’ve just been wiped out with a full course of antibiotics for a certain number of days into an antibiotic-resistant infection, which can be really, really tough, if not impossible to treat, and be fatal, to boot.
