Over the holidays, the California Department of Public Health released a report that found that thousands of Californians continue to die every year from infections they catch in hospitals.

One of those people was Carole Moss’ son Nile. In 2006, the 15-year-old succumbed to a methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection he caught at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Nile suffered from a brain condition that required frequent hospitalizations.
