You have to be careful to investigate this kind of thing when you're picking hospitals. My mother was being treated for chest pains in a hospital where they were being perfectly nice to her, until she told them that her pacemaker had been put in at a hospital that was known to have some of the antibiotic resistant bacteria (I can't remember if it was MRSA or another type).
As soon as they knew that, they isolated her in a very run down room and none of the nurses would go near her, even though the pacemaker had been put in months ago. She was swabbed, but told the results would only be available in three days time. Until then, they basically treated her as though she was infected, which I guess is a good thing for every other patient, but it was very strange and scary for my mother.
