The hospital is where you go to feel better, but for many patients, lying in a hospital bed could be the place they get worse.
648,000 people, on average, get sick during a stay at the hospital.
Fox 32’s Michelle Dunaway tells us how to stop this deadly cycle in tonight’s Healthy Living.

But a study by the American Society for Microbiology found that MRSA can follow you home, whether you went to the hospital or not.

It adapts genetically, lingers for years and can be transferred from person to person.
