Hospitals over prescribing antibiotics
Centers for Disease Control says many hospitals are over prescribing antibiotics.
And the practice is putting patients at risk.
The CDC studied hundreds of hospitals and found some prescribed antibiotics at three times the rate of others.
That's making many of the drugs less effective and leaving patients more vulnerable to other types of infections.
The CDC recommends every hospital adopt an antibiotic accountability program to monitor the use of the drugs.
