A young man was prescribed antibiotics for a cut on his shin. He developed a flu and after going to emergency, was diagnosed with a chest infection which again was treated by antibiotics. He refused to be admitted even though ill. Several days later he was returned to hospital by ambulance where he was finally tested positive for golden staph and despite rigorous treatment died several hours later.
