MSRA at St. Elizabeth Heath Care Hospital

Has anyone you know come down with MSRA at St. Elizabeth Health Care Hospital in Brea? Please let me know. I believe that the contaminations have been transmitted due to poor laundry practices. In stead of doing one persons cloths in a load of laundry so that there wouldn't be any cross contamination. St. Elizabeth does everyones laundry together including cloths with fecal matter and doesn't not properly rinse cloths leaving soap, fecal matter and other organics in the cloths.

If anyone in your family has come down with MSRA from St. Elizabeth Hospital Brea or anywhere please post and tell me your story.

Here's the BEEF about MSRA

Been trying to find out more about MSRA and how it's past around hospitals. Looking at the state web site they have a real cute cartoonish PDF about MSRA. This link above has one thing I was interested in because my father seem to be contaminated by dirty laundry. Where the hospital didn't do the laundry properly and left things like heavy deposits of soap in the garments. If that has happened then I believe that the cloths with fecal matter were just distributed to other cloths contaminating every one that came into contact with them.
Looking up the hospital and the residence complaints there were none.
What gets me is there's no reporting of how the contaminations happen. To find out which hospital has a problem is real hard also since they are paying customers to the search engines then nothing negative comes out about paying customers.
Seems to me that every hospital should have all the errors and infection that happen in a state data base which a law was past last year to have. Finding out that information is another endeavor though.
Working with data bases over the years, even a phone list which I do is better then the states data base. Sort of reflect how the government works. The FBI hired a company in San Diego to make up a data base search program. Millions of dollars and years later the program didn't work and the company was fired, having to start the whole process over.
According to this web page the state requires that MSRA infections need to be reported. This is great for the state but how can you make an informed decision on what hospital you want to go to.
Here's a list of the common infections in the state but it doesn't tell you where they are and what the density is in the city areas.
I don't want to see a fact sheet that tells me what to do to prevent the infections because I know that. I want to know where those infections are and in what density. The USGS has risk maps and shake maps where earthquakes could happen. This same approach should be available with infections. Hearing on the news that "West Nile" infection happened in this one person in this one area doesn't give you a true information on the density of the mosquito infections and how the population of mosquitoes are. Saying we found a bird contaminated in this one area doesn't give you much information. What is the density of mosquitoes in that area. This year was the first year I've seen mosquitoes all year round because it never got cold enough to kill the insects this winter. It's also the driest it's ever been here since I've moved here too. My creek hasn't flowed all year which it used to when I first moved here did. I used to get as much as three feet of water in the creek in the winter months but it seems no one is really interested because other pressing problems like the state budget, the war on terror or terrorist, the economy, sub-prime loans, the recession, or the price of gasoline are more important. I guess money is more important then having a planet that will support life is more important.
Well I'm rambling so I'll stop and continue doing my research on hospitals and infections.

Just when you thought you had it all then it happen, new stuff

Soon at a store near you. I haven't even got to USB 2.0 yet
Intel News Release

Popular USB Computer Connection Technology Expands performance with Proposed USB 3.0 Specification

INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco, Sept. 18, 2007 – Intel Corporation and other industry leaders have formed the USB 3.0 Promoter Group to create a superspeed personal USB interconnect that can deliver over 10 times the speed of today's connection. The technology, also developed by HP, Microsoft Corporation, NEC Corporation, NXP Semiconductors and Texas Instruments Incorporated, will target fast sync-and-go transfer applications in the PC, consumer and mobile segments that are necessary as digital media become ubiquitous and file sizes increase up to and beyond 25 Gigabytes.

USB (Universal Serial Bus) 3.0 will create a backward-compatible standard with the same ease-of-use and plug and play capabilities of previous USB technologies. Targeting over 10x performance increase, the technology will draw from the same architecture of wired USB. In addition, the USB 3.0 specification will be optimized for low power and improved protocol efficiency. USB 3.0 ports and cabling will be designed to enable backward compatibility as well as future-proofing for optical capabilities.

"USB 3.0 is the next logical step for the PC's most popular wired connectivity," said Jeff Ravencraft, technology strategist with Intel and president of the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). "The digital era requires high-speed performance and reliable connectivity to move the enormous amounts of digital content now present in everyday life. USB 3.0 will meet this challenge while maintaining the ease-of-use experience that users have come to love and expect from any USB technology."

Intel formed the USB 3.0 Promoter Group with the understanding that the USB-IF would act as the trade association for the USB 3.0 specification. A completed USB 3.0 specification is expected by the first half of 2008. USB 3.0 implementations will initially be in the form of discrete silicon.

The USB 3.0 Promoter Group is committed to preserving the existing USB device class driver infrastructure and investment, look-and-feel and ease-of-use of USB while continuing to expand this great technology's capabilities.

About the USB-IF
The non-profit USB Implementers Forum, Inc. was formed to provide a support organization and forum for the advancement and adoption of USB technology. The USB-IF facilitates the development of high-quality compatible USB devices, through its logo and compliance program and promotes the benefits of USB and the quality of products that have passed compliance testing. Further information, including postings of the most recent product and technology announcements, is available by visiting the USB-IF Web site at

Who they did that and why they are not protecting it

Attorney General says FBI is still getting US citizens personal information and it's even more then they requested. Mean while Bush insists that congress pass a bill giving a blanket protection to companies gathering information about people. Rather it's a phone call, a email or text message like on a blackberry which purposively is one of the communications that caught Spitzer. Congress wants to know what they are protecting but Bush won't tell them.

I agree that you can't make a law protecting some one or some thing if you don't know what it is. We still can't find out why the whitehouse had some people fired and the emails from the whitehouse which are suppose to be archived. The torture tapes were destroys and it wasn't an ooops of one tape being taped over, it was 200 to 300 tapes that were destroyed.

The idea that you trust a person that lied about a war and why he wanted to get into it and now it looks like they are planning for this war to continue at least for another 10 years. We are been blasted day after day why we need to invade another country because of a weapons development program they gave up 5 years ago. But Bush doesn't believe the intelligences and insists he knows better.

This sound like the same things the Germans did before they invaded Poland, being told that Poland was planning to attack them so they need to attack Poland before they attack.

So, big brother is watching you also listening and reading your mail. You can now get tortured. FBI and law enforcement can do what they call a sneak and peak into your house without a warrant. To me this doesn't even sound like a country of laws anymore. It sound more like the totalitarian countries the president is talking about to be democracy to. I guess the next step would be secret prisons for the dissidents what we got that already, Gitmo and a numerous other secret prison in countries you never heard of. We have private army contractors bigger then the army's of many counties. 50% of the contractors in Iraq are this private army which just so happens to be called Blackwater an acronym for oil or hasn't everyone got that yet. The police dogs and enforcers of the corporations. Also a friend of the republican Neo-Cons.

My God, we have become them, the people we have been taught to hate.

You get what you pay for

Why do men hirer $1000 dollar a night prostitutes? Hearing some explanations on the radio really didn’t make sense for me. Saying it was daring for that man. That it was for convenience purposes when a mate wasn’t available.

What I see is a person with the money to spend a $1000 dollars for a night for a professional woman is because he can. You get a quality woman someone of the beauty as a movie star if not better. They are clean a disease free. I’m sure if you gave any average “Joe” on the street the money or the woman and say, have at it, they would take it in a New York minute.

If you noticed the news has said that many of the girls cost up much more then $1000 a night. I’m thinking they are something real special. The news also compared Bill Clinton as hiring a prostitute also, wonder how that make Monica feel, well I guess she was a working girl in one way or another.

To hear all these people especially the republicans being outraged after being caught many times soliciting sex from some one, Larry Craig. Or a minister saying how bad homosexual is then he finds out he is one and have been paying a male prostitute plus doing methamphetamine, Reverent Ted who said he didn’t have sex in Denver as his defense, since it was in a out lying area. That was the truth as far as saying it was not in Denver. He never denied that he had sex with a male prostitute or did speed and it wasn’t a little speed like a casual user might get it was a ¼ ounce, something that a person could use for a couple months. Maybe he needed a bump to write all those anti gay sermons on the mount. Then he went to anti-gay camp and was cured of his gayness, ya right.

As far as Elliot goes, I say right on for getting quality goods that men only dream about. As far as how they found out about it, that warrant-less wire tapping really works when you want to destroy a political opponent. Then again the very rich companies that he went after have enough money a resources that they could monitor his behaviors and find out just about anything about anyone. Just look at all that junk mail that is targeted towards you. Republicans are feeling rather desperate right now and won’t stop at anything to win. So the man is human and had to relieve a little tension, it just cost more then the average guy could pay but if they could I’m sure they would be giving them a call.

If you listen to the pop culture there aren’t very many singers that don’t talk about getting a professional woman. You get what you pay for.

It's the sun and blossoming flowers

What a great day, the sun is out. The plum, pear, cherry and willows trees have buds and flowers. There's also daffodils opening up. Last night I had the windows open until 10 PM. The air smells so fresh and clean. The little birds are out, so are the squirrels. The young squirrels are playing with there little friends the game of chase, testing out their squirrel skills. Winters not over and it's spring like weather. Hope it doesn't have any snow in the future like past years where it knocked off the blossoms of some of the fruit trees. That was a poor years for fruit. If it stays like this with gentle rain then it's going to be a good fruit year but it's going to be dry. The creek hasn't got any water. Last two years the creek was flowing but stopped early in the year. When I first moved here the creek flowed all year round. Lot's of deadwood to trim from the trees. A happy forest is a clean forest. There's a calm right now with the birds and squirrels everyone is enjoying the day. In about an hour they will be back to get the last snack before they perch in the trees for the night. Last night was nice hearing the first owls and frogs.

An oil company manipulating the market, imagine that.

An oil company manipulating the market, imagine that. Like an oil company could do that to get it's way to drill in Alaska, again. Just like the first time they manipulated the market in the 70's to get the Alaskan Pipeline in, driving the price of oil higher to get their way. They are doing it again to get their way to drill in a wild life sanctuary. Imagine that.

A president because he is in oil letting it happen. Imagine that.

A vice president because he is in oil. Imagine that.
