The rate of MRSA infections continues to rise in Southern Nevada even though there are well-known ways to reduce incidents of the hard-to-treat infection. The local Veterans' Administration is using them and has a very different track record on MRSA infections. We talk to Marshall Allen of the Las Vegas Sun about the latest part of his investigation into health care in Southern Nevada. We are also joined by local experts who deal with MRSA every day.

GUESTS
Marshall Allen, Medical Reporter, LV Sun
