Carole Moss has been a lead advocate on the effort to pass legislation requiring California hospitals to report their infection rates available to the public. The bill is names after her son, Nile, who died of MRSA, an antibiotic resistant superbug. The legislation also requires screening of patients for MRSA and isolating those that have it.
Similar legislation has failed in the state the past four years. But this year with the help of Carole and many other dedicated advocates, including those with personal hospital infection experiences, the bill has passed the General Assembly and is being sent to the governor for signature into law.
