  1. Check out the discussion about that infographic on e-patients.net (courtesy of David Harlow). One grumpy physician seems to suggest that HAI’s are largely the responsibility of patients he describes as “uneducated, obese, … other comorbidities, and otherwise bad hygine” [sic]!

    I wonder if he can spell “denial” as well as he spells hygiene.:-)
