I had a personal experience with this infectious out break problem at The Princess Margaret Hospital. This 'super killer bug' is a hospital acquired infection that occurs if medical care givers are not practicing proper hygienic standards. According to the Global Sepsis Alliance organization which is a strong advocate for the Stop Sepsis & Save Lives campaign, this super bug starts as an infection and in most cases is not treated promptly. As a result it develops as Sepsis which can occur very rapidly and spreads throughout the body in the blood stream attacking all organs such: the heart, lungs, kidneys, intestines as well as the brain. The body then shuts down and goes into Septic Shock. At The Princess Margaret Hospital this is an issue that has not been formally addressed by medical personnel or the government and I want to know what is going to be done about this 'super killer bug' issue. World Sepsis Day awareness is September 13th, 2013 in the The Bahamas for the first time. For more information go to Global Sepsis Alliance link online or World Sepsis Day on face book. Sepsis is serious and is a medical emergency globally. Support the cause!
Thank you for sharing Juliet. Your story is tragic and it is so important that you bring awareness to this cause. People don't always know these things when they step into a hospital… especially in a NICU. The period of time here in the Bahamas where we lost infants to this outbreak was most tragic and preventable… again, thank you for sharing and bringing light to this area. We are often left in the dark… and I am sorry for all that you have had to experience.
