Bill on drug-resistant infections advances in Washington state

A bill in Washington State's legislature designed to cut the spread of drug-resistant staph infections passed the Senate Monday. It requires health professionals to note on death certificates when the deadly bacteria played a role in a patient's demise. The bill is designed to aid the state in monitoring efforts. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates almost 19,000 people died nationwide in 2007 from MRSA.
