C. diff Prevention

Each year clostridium difficile is linked to an estimated 250,000 infections, 14,000 deaths, and $1 billion in excess medical costs in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, C. diff infections occur most frequently in people who have had recent medical care and typically have taken antibiotics. Many of these infections can be prevented and everyone can play a role.
