Representative Jackie Speier, MRSA bill

I was invited to Washington DC to help Rep Jackie Speier introduce a new federal bill to mandate steps to stop MRSA in our hospitals.  Jeanine Thomas of the MRSA Survivors network told Rep. Speier’s assistant about my father.  I told them both that I was willing to make the trip to DC to breifly tell about Dad because it is important to do this.  It is important to me, and to anyone who has had MRSA or has lost a loved one because of MRSA.  It is important to every patient who enters the hospital in the future.  It is important to everybody.

I admire Rep Speier for bringing this timely and necessary bill forward.  Each State is getting stimulus money for programs to help stop Hospital Acquired Infections.  The word is out about our hospitals and most hospitals are not doing the best they can.  Active Detection and Isolation is what they need to do.   If Rep Speier’s bill passes, all hospitals will be doing just that.

So, I am camped outside of the city at Lake Fairfax County Campground preparing to be at the Capitol on June 24 to help bring this bill out.  I have to say……..this is a lovely area with so many things to see and do…..but it’s a little  humid and drippy for my taste.  Maine weather suits me best.
