In a St. Joseph Healthscene, the government has approved a test that can detect many so-called "superbugs" - including Mersa - in less an hour. The test may also help doctors quickly determine which anti-biotic would be most effective in treating the resistant infection. On average, patients stay in the hospital an additional 18 days following a Mersa infection, and nearly 20,000 die every year.
