    LOS ANGELES (AP) — In a Feb. 20, 2015 story about an antibiotic-resistant “superbug” outbreak at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, The Associated Press mischaracterized a statement an expert made about proving the cause of an infection. Lawrence Muscarella, a health care and sterilization expert, said he was suggesting an argument hospitals might use when he said, “Proving causation is impossible.” Muscarella said an infection can be proven to come from a hospital instrument.
