Modern Epidemic.

Imagine entering a hospital setting for a small cut that needs stitches and being told you won’t see your leg again. Due to what are frequently only just minor mistakes made by medical professionals, MRSA is playing too large of a role in 21st century amputation.

MRSA is responsible for hard-to-treat infections that can be located anywhere on the body. Whereas potent diseases are usually caught in unsanitary and unmonitored environments, these infections can ironically be caught in a hospital. Though doctors treat illnesses, their carelessness can also expedite their spread. Thankfully, we have means of putting an end to this modern epidemic. The transmission of healthcare acquired MRSA can be avoided if professionals just remembered to wash their hands after using the bathroom or seeing another patient. Save an arm; wash your hands!
