If you had a party in Canada and told your guests no guns they would look at you as oddly as if you had said Please leave your octopus at home. No one would ever think to do such a thing.~ Roedy (born:1948-02-04 age:68)

On 2012-09-22 my Aunt Anne died. She broke her hip went to hospital, then immediately contracted two opportunistic infections including pneumonia and died. I later discovered this happens fairly often. Why?
- Bacteria and viruses are getting more resistant to the chemical, disinfectants and drugs we use to combat them.
- Ostensibly for cost saving, the BC Liberal government outsourced most of the hospital cleaning and sterilising. These people are not trained and are much less thorough than before. For example, the curtains between beds used to be thoroughly cleaned regularly. Now they are not cleaned at all. I suspect the outsourcing was really about weakening standards, weakening unions and funnelling money to Liberal contributors who took on the contracts.
We need experts in sterilisation to tell us how we can get these infections under control for reasonable cost. The computer industry has clean-room technology that might be appropriate for the most at-risk patients.~ Roedy (born:1948-02-04 age:68)
