Everyone Failed in Rotterdam Hospital Bacteria Outbreak

All who were involved last year in dealing with the outbreak of the resistant Klebsiella bacteria in the Maasstad Hospital in Rotterdam have failed. That is the conclusion of a commission of inquiry headed by Wolter Lemstra. Everyone involved seriously underestimated the danger of the outbreak. As a result, the patients involved and the families of the patients who died have experienced unnecessary damage and suffering. The chairman of the hospital has offered apologies. No one has been suspended or fired.
