Don't let a hospital kill your child - CNN.com
23 years ago, my specialist told me to stay away from ERs (and hospitals in general) because they are full of germs, and the last thing a depleted immune system needs is to be exposed to that wide a variety of germs.
Having just watched a friend die of multiple Hospital Acquired Infections, I took him seriously. I'd rather die in my own bed of whatever cold/flu I picked up at the grocery store than add TB, staph, MRSA, C.diff., etc. to the problem!
