Wellness Wednesday: 'Superbugs' In Hospitals
Antibiotic resistance is “one of the biggest public health challenges of our time,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Each year in the U.S., at least 2.8 million people get an antibiotic-resistant infection, and more than 35,000 people die.
A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal JAMA Network Open suggests doctors prescribing those antibiotics may be partly to blame.
