What's in a name?

by Dom Corrigan

MRSA, the "super-bug", so called because of its resistance to antibiotics, is a big problem in UK hospitals. Each year, thousands of inpatients die of this infection which might be prevented by better standards of hospital cleanliness - routine hand-washing, for instance.
