The superbug outbreak at UCLA | SUPERBUG, UCLA, CRE- CARBAPENEM -RESISTANT ENTEROBACTERIACEAE

” In the first lawsuit stemming from the superbug out break at UCLA , an 18 years old patient accused a major device maker of negligence for selling a medical scope prone to spreading deadly bacteria.

Aaron Young, a high school student still hospitalized at UCLA for his infection , sued Olympus Corps, of the Americas in Los Angeles  County Superior Court, alleging negligence and fraud.

The teenager was exposed to a contaminated Olympus duodenoscope at UCLA  in October and again in January.

As a result , Young is still receiving treatment for a CRE infection and will be at UCLA ‘s Ronald Reagan Medical Center for an extended time.

CRE, which stands for carbapenem -resistant Enterobacteriaceae, is highly resistant to antibiotics and can kill up to 50% of infected patients. ”  by Chad Terhune and Javier Panzar, Los Angeles Times, Feb 26, 2015
