CDC Seeking Comments - Surgical Site infections. Deadline 28 Feb. 2014.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is accepting public comments on the Draft Guideline for the Prevention of Surgical Site Infections until 28 February 2014, presenting an opportunity for opponents of circumcision in the U.S. to archive practical arguments against continuation of the practice in the Federal Register.

 

The online comment box is limited to 5000 characters, but you can upload larger documents.

 

Doctors Opposing Circumcision (DOC) produced an excellent document about the risk to newly circumcised boys from Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, here (scroll down to 'Statements'), which unfortunately hasn't been updated since 2008, but is still better than nothing.

 

We have some threads over at F-R.net tagged MRSA and hospital infections, which might be good starting point for readers interested in updating the DOC statement, or researching and drafting their own submission from scratch.
