According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 14 people in six states (Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Tennessee)were recently infected with the same strain of E. coli. One death was reported in Louisiana. Cooking meats well, washing our hands regularly especially before preparing food or eating are good methods to prevent infection. Are you involved in educating patients about infection prevention and treatment?
