Screening for MRSA

Oh, this IS a hoot. A hospital will screen incoming patients for MRSA? Will they test staff pens, their equipment, doctors and nurses who are the most likely vectors for the spread? Will they start spending more time hand washing and employing basic hygiene?

Pardon me, but this new effort is quite a bit like screening at the airport. It's a big nuisance that will do little to stop the spread of disease.
