Cooperation is the key to reducing the spread of deadly hospital infections.

A new study revealed MRSA rates decreased when hospitals coordinated their infection control procedures.

That's because hospitals often share patients ... which can advance the spread of MRSA.

Researchers found when multiple area hospitals adopted a policy that pre-tested patients for infections, MRSA rates were almost four percent lower than in hospitals that worked alone.
