C. Diff. Infections Caused by Hospitals

Clostridium difficile, or C. Diff., infections arise almost exclusively in the healthcare setting, a recent study finds.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 95% of C. Diff. infections arise in the healthcare settings, such as hospitals and nursing homes.  The CDC specifically recognized that such facilities need to improve their infection control measures to reduce the incidence of this potentially deadly infection.  Delays in diagnosis and treatment of C. Diff. infections are providing an increasingly common basis for medical negligence claims in Ohio.

In the 2000s, the incidence of C. Diff. infections, as well as their severity, has been increasing, as hospital and nursing homes’ infection control measures fail to curtail this menace.  Other studies have shown that proper infection control measures can essentially eradicate this disease which can prove fatal in elderly,  immunocompromised and other hospitalized patients.  Read more here: http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6109a3.htm?s_cid=mm6109a3_w.
