There is a well oiled cover-up going on here.
It is the MRSA-PMWS ridden pigs in the immediate area.
MRSA is arriving via the staff and patients.
They are checking the staff, but are refusing to release any results.
It's a big secret, but in accordance with the "Gardiner Hypothesis." Most MRSA epidemics follow PMWS-Circovirus epidemics in pig herds. Unravelled in England.
To tackle MRSA in hospitals, you must tackle PMWS in pigs.
MRSA outbreak delays surgeries at Charlottetown hospital
Last Updated: Thursday, December 18, 2008 7:19 AM AT
Twenty elective gynecological surgeries have been postponed due to arecent MRSA outbreak in the nursery at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown.
Officials at the hospital said the methicillin-resistantStaphylococcus aureus, an antibiotic resistant bacteria, appear to be under control now. Eleven babies born at the hospital tested positive for MRSA this fall. None became ill, and there have been no new cases in more than two weeks.
The surgeries have been rescheduled as a precaution. Rick Adams, executive director of the QEH, told CBC News Wednesday that women who've had gynecological surgery and need to stay in hospital usually recover in the nursery. The decision to reschedule was made to reduce exposure to MRSA and free up nursing staff to work on infection control.
"None of them are urgent or emergency, so given the situation that we've been dealing with in Unit 4 over the last number of weeks, we deemed it in the best interest of our patients to postpone till January," said Adams.
"Within several days of the postponement, they were all provided new dates for their surgeries."Adams said if there are new cases of MRSA, those dates could also change.
