Has this happened to anyone else? Thank goodness I've never had to go to the hospital here. However, of all the people I know who have been treated at a certain hospital, all of them, plus half of their visitors, have come out with some sort of infection that usually requires medicine, or worst case - surgery! I'm really dismayed, and angry!! Hospitals are facilities for the purpose of providing people with appropriate medical care, right? So how come virtually everyone I can think of gets sicker, by infection, while at the hospital?? Its disturbing!! Infection!?! Whats going on?!

Anyone in the medical community have an explaination? Any stories or opinions? My sweet, sweet neighbor friend has to have surgery soon for an infection in her heart. Her heart!! She's not even going to the hospital for heart treatments!! I'm so upset and appalled that this happens with apparent regularity!!
