Attorneys for two patients who were infected with a drug-resistant bacterial “superbug” during medical procedures in a Los Angeles hospital, one of whom died, have sued the maker of the devices used in their care. Aaron Young, an 18-year-old high school student who remains under monitoring at a hospital fighting the severe infection, and the family of Antonia Cerda sued Olympus Corp, which manufactured the specialized scopes used during the outbreak at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center.
