Sacramento Bee

Steps are being taken to rid the Sutter Memorial Hospital neonatal intensive care unit of MRSA after about 20 babies tested positive for the bacteria.

In addition to the 20 infants who tested positive, two babies showed symptoms of the drug-resistant bacteria. Those two babies have mild conjunctivitis, weeping from the eyes, that in those two cases is related to MRSA.
