When you go into the hospital, you expect to get healed, right? Well, it's not that they're not doing good work, but one in twenty people pick up infections in hospitals. And if you get an infection in a clean and sterile place like a hospital, it's likely pretty strong. Public health officials call the bacteria that survive in hospitals superbugs, and many are resistant to antibiotics. Wednesday morning at nine, we'll assess the superbug threat and find out how we can stay safe and hospitals can stay sterile.

Carol Cunningham, Emergency Medical Services Director, Lake Hospital System and State Medical Director, Ohio Department of Public Safety
