Dental surgery is a grueling profession.
But as much as it can be, it’s also a demanding one, requiring dedicated people and constant monitoring.
In this video, NBC News correspondent Liz Kreutz talks to some of the surgeons and dental nurses at the University of Miami Medical Center in Miami, Florida, who are working to keep the surgery safe and keep their patients comfortable.
Kreutz says the hospital has been working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help track down the source of the infection, which has infected hundreds of people.
“This is an important time for us,” said Dr. Joseph M. Lisi, who oversees the intensive care unit.
“This is a very serious situation.
We are trying to get to the bottom of this.”
Here are the details on the patient, who was hospitalized for pneumonia on Feb. 15.
The patient had an acute bronchitis infection, but he didn’t require surgery, Dr. M.
He has been hospitalized and treated in the intensive-care unit.
The infection is very serious and we are trying everything we can to get him to the hospital.
It’s been an extremely stressful day, but I am optimistic that we will make it through this and be released, Dr, Lisi said, noting the patient is still on antibiotics.
He did not know the severity of the situation.
The hospital has an additional 18 dental residents working in the unit, and the hospital is working to get as many of them back in the office as quickly as possible.
The nurse in charge of the patient said the patient had a hard time breathing after arriving at the hospital, but is expected to make a full recovery.
The nurses and dental surgeons were also notified that the patient was hospitalized, but they didn’t know until Monday that the person had an infection.
“He’s not responding to anything, he’s not moving, he is not moving at all,” Dr. Lassi said.
“He is very weak.
We have a few cases of pneumonia.
We’re not in a good situation here.
But we’re going to get the patients out of here.”
The hospital is urging anyone with questions about the outbreak to contact its hotline at 1-800-222-1222.
The CDC has issued a bulletin advising all adults and children aged 6 to 17 to avoid eating raw or undercooked meat, fish, shellfish, eggs and dairy products, as well as all raw or overcooked dairy products.
People can also limit their intake of alcohol and other drugs.
