Surgeon Operates and Spreads Staph Infections

A surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center operated on five heart patients despite his contaminated hands. He has retained his job apart from performing surgeries. The doctor's use of gloves was not enough to stop the spread of staphylococcus epidermidis bacteria from his hands to each of his patients, thus resulting in staph infections. The hospital has apologized to patients and has since provided them with medical care.
