Assignment 1: Applications of Epidemiology – A Case Study
Due Week 3 and worth 280 points
The  situation at Good Health Hospital has become a bit overwhelming ever  since the outbreak of E. coli in Ward 10 on the second floor. It appears  that there are six (6) cases of the disease. To better understand the  situation, communication with the CDC has revealed that this particular  bacterium can be found in many everyday items. The CDC recommends that  investigation begins in the hospital kitchens, since E. coli can be  transmitted via contaminated vegetables, as well as delicatessen meats  such as salami and other cold cuts. The following table shows the number  of cases identified so far:
Case Age Gender   1 23 M   2 21 F   3 15 M   4 42 F    

  After meeting yesterday with chief administrator Joe Wellborn, it has  been decided that the litigation issues with one (1) of the patients may  need further information to determine if the patient was already  symptomatic with the bacteria prior to admission.
Research has  indicated that hospitals operating in the Tampa Bay area have been known  to have cases of E. coli contamination. This substantiates the need for  further investigations by the County Health Department.
Due to  the severity of the cases, and the potential for further spread, it is  recommended that the hospital seek alternate vending services since the  present suppliers cannot verify sanitation protocols for their products.
In  conclusion, the study done at Good Health Hospital has indicated that  the E. coli outbreak was in fact caused by spoil food from the  cafeteria.
As a social science researcher working for a regional  hospital, you are placed in charge of contacting the DOH from your home  state, as well as the CDC for statistical data on nosocomial diseases  that frequently cause illness at your health care facility. Using  information from both agencies, evaluate the data on common nosocomial  diseases and compile a treatment contingency plan for dealing with the  hospital infections.
