The new superbug bladder infection bug?

Has anyone heard anything about this new antibiotic resistant strain of bladder infection that killed a woman in Ohio?She had chronic uti's for five years, then suddenly died from kidney failure.I have also been having chronic untreatable infections for a few years now. Do they do the test for this when you go in? My Dr. is clueless & lazy! Looking for a new one asap!Thanks

When they take a urine sample, you can ask for a sensitivity culture, to be sure the best antibiotic is being used.
