University of Maryland Medical Center ICU nurse Nicole Storck puts on gloves before entering a patients room, Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2010, in Baltimore.  Every doctor, nurse and visitor who enters an intensive care patient's room at the University of Maryland Medical Center dons a bright yellow surgical gown and gloves so germs don't spread. Patroling the ICU like a cop on the beat is an infection preventionist, part of the change under way in U.S. hospitals to slash hospital-spread infections that claim an estimated 99,000 lives a year.
