    Federal MRSA Law - Patient Protection Act

    "U.S." only

    There are two bills, one before the U.S. Congress and one before the U.S. Senate.


    Both will melded just before becoming law. The result will be that the 40 some states with Law concerning MRSA will be superceded by the new Federal MRSA Law. Many of the State Laws are more or less voluntary or worse weak in enforcement. The 10 remain will have to yield to the Federal MRSA Law.

    A fringe benefit of the to the patient from the Federal MRSA Law will be that the healthcare provider has to show a reasonable explantion for patients to be diagnosed CA-MRSA (community acquired) within a year for healthcare services rendered. The Federal MRSA Law for the first time will set jurisdiction for damages from Healthcare providers who fraudently misdiagnose nosocomial infections as CA-MRSA. The Federal MRSA law requires reporting of these infections to the CDC failure to do so will result in penalizing reinbursement to healthcare providers of Federal funds. A form of this penalty was enacted last year for nosocomial complications. This is being followed in suit by Health Insurance companies. Further this Federal MRSA Law ammends the regulations of OSHA giving protection to the Healthcare Workers in facilities who have previously dodged financial responsibility of workers suffering "Injury" in performance of duties. Leaving them inevitably to become a further burden on nation healthcare.

    For further information google Federal MRSA Law. And how to contact your representatives concerning the Patient and Healthcare Worker Protection and Recovery Act.

    The days of making money off us by making us sick are over. MRSA stock is about to tank.
