Canadian invention to clean hospital rooms may save 10,000 lives a year
CTV News
It's being called a silent epidemic, killing about 8 – 10,000 Canadians each year. Hospital rooms that aren't able to get completely clean between patients are responsible for people getting what are called hospital-acquired infections such as MRSA, C. difficile and E. coli among other infections.

Wisconsin hospital flips hierarchal care model to better serve patients
The Vancouver Sun
When a Wisconsin hospital decided to blow up its model of care, administrators started with the premise that patients would be the captains of the ship, doctors would be mere experts, nurses would be care managers, and pharmacists would take on larger, more visible roles. And free valet parking would be offered for patients and their visitors.

Silk-based surgical implants could help heal broken bones
ANI News
