    Sharing hospital room may increase infection risk during stay

    Sharing a hospital room increases your risk of picking up an infection during your stay, a new study shows." The work, by researchers from Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., "found that each new roommate raised a patient's risk of picking up an infection in hospital by about 10 percent." The study's senior author, Dr. Dick Zoutman, said in a statement, "That's a substantial risk, particularly for longer hospital stays when you can expect to have many different roommates."
