Following surgery in 2005, ISPIS executive director Ron Stoker contracted a nosocomial staph infection. This occured several weeks after surgery and nearly took his life. Four surgeries and eight weeks of IV antibiotics later, he has recovered, with only a few permanent side effects. He believes that the infection could have been prevented if proper hospital procedures had been followed, including proper hand hygiene and gloving techniques.
