Khloe Kardashian had earlier complained that she may have contracted a staph infection from visiting Lamar Odom’s bedside. However, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center insists that the hospital is not a hotbed for staph infection.
They say their incidence of staph infections is below state and national benchmarks for hospitals. They say staph infections are notoriously common, that a large percentage of the population have staph bacteria on some part of their body.
Khloe cancelled several book tour appearances after developing a lesion on her leg. She’s battling staph and believes she contracted it during her visits with Lamar.
Cedars says the best way to prevent the disease is – wash your hands.
