Hospital Concerned Over Infections

The University of Kentucky Hospital continues to disinfect its intensive care unit and investigate a potentially serious problem.

The hospital has had several cases of a multi-drug resistant organism. So far, it's been concentrated in one ICU.

These types of infections are hard to treat because some of them are resistant to all types of antibiotics.

U.K. officials say they are doing everything they can to monitor the problem.
