Such a tragedy.

The medical personnel must have felt helpless and frustrated in the battle against another "super bug", and saddened by it, as well.

Such a beautiful young woman. may she rest in peace.

hospital infections

That is such a tragedy. I wonder where the model acquired the infection.

It's scary how many people are acquiring MRSA & other infections in hospitals themselves. Seems very hard to control the spread, but there is far more emphasis being put on basic hand washing hygiene by staff. I hope it helps!

Ontario hospitals are having to report more types of infections now than they used to, because of the increasing rates.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
