The statistics concerning infections contracted while the patient is hospitalized in human hospitals has interested me as a veterinary surgeon for many reasons. Veterinary hospital infectiond has interested me as a veterinary surgeon with wonderment as to when will such a problem become established in veterinary establishments. Also it appears that with the ultimate in cleanliness and application of powerful anti-bacterial preparations, the problem persists in even the best human establishments. Not having studied the science of that problem it may be presumptious of me to offer a suggestion as to an approach to controle the problem. Since virtually no bacterial organisms can survive in the presence of colonies of yeast, why not spray cultures of yeast over all surfaces of operating rooms before surgery. Research would indicate the frequency of such spraying. As far as I can determine yeast is harmless to humans.
