Can you imagine going into the hospital for heart or knee surgery, contracting an infection that's unrelated to your illness, and dying from it?

That's what happens to an estimated 90,000 people every year, yet hospitals still don't have to disclose their rates of infection. Hospitals don't even have to report their infection rates to the regulators who are responsible for making sure they meet basic standards.

Just click the banner above  to email your U.S. Senators urging them to make hospitals disclose their infection rates.

And don't forget to tell all your family and friends!
