WASHINGTON - Feb. 9, 2017 - PRLog -- Carole and Ty Moss, Founders of Nile's Project (, a public awareness and educational organization dedicated to preventing unnecessary deaths from hospital-acquired infections and sepsis, attended the Presidential Advisory Committee Meeting (PACCARB) for Combating Antibiotic Resistance Bacteria (CARB) in Washington DC. on January 25th. They had their voices heard for all to hear after a very long journey.

In a mini victory, after more than a year of many patient safety activist requesting this committee to focus on preventing antibiotic resistant infections in hospitals the committee will include infection prevention on the agenda. Carole and Ty spoke on the recent report of hospital acquired infections from Nile's Law that has just come out and shows a constant increase. After careful analysis, they have uncovered the reason why and gave the public the facts that no one else is talking about. .

For the 6 years that this data has been gathered and shared with the public, over 100,000 people have contracted these preventable hospital acquired infections in California that cause death and life changing harm and millions of dollars are paid by insurance companies to the hospitals that are causing this harm.

"We knew that collecting this hospital acquired infection data would be something people could act on and save lives, it was not until April of 2016 did we learn that the department simply reported the data as a process without action, Carole said. This is a process that needed change."

Niles's Project ( was formed nine years ago when Ty and Carole Moss unexpectedly lost their 15-year-old son, Nile, to Sepsis that began with the an infection from the bacteria MRSA that Nile contracted as an outpatient at a top Children's hospital in Orange County California. MRSA is one of the preventable antibiotic resistant bacteria's that more than 700,000 patients contract every year in hospitals, in the US from unclean facilities, surfaces and unclean devices. Up until this day and going forward, Carole and Ty are doing everything they can to make sure this doesn't happen to you!
