San Diego Union-Tribune

Four patients at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center have been infected with an antibiotic-resistant “superbug” linked to a type of medical scope that’s used on more than a half-million people in the U.S. every year, the hospital said Wednesday.

The revelation comes two weeks after a similar outbreak at Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center where seven patients were sickened with the superbug known as CRE after undergoing endoscopic procedures. Two died.
