Cedars-Sinai probing whether superbug infections are tied to scopes
Los Angeles Times

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center said it’s investigating whether patients with superbug infections are linked to contaminated medical scopes, similar to a recent outbreak at UCLA.

The well-known Los Angeles hospital said it hasn’t determined whether the CRE infections it has found are tied to duodenoscopes, which were the source of exposure at UCLA’s Ronald Reagan Medical Center.
