What is C. diff?

When you enter a hospital, whether you are sick or going in for surgery, you expect to be made healthier while you are there. However, in some cases, the hospital environment leads to further infection and illness. One such issue involved Clostridium difficile or C. diff.

According to the Mayo Clinic, C. diff is bacteria that causes severe illness and can potential lead to death. These bacteria is prevalent in the hospital environment. In fact, it is most common to get a C. diff infection if you are in a hospital or similar place. It is rather easily spread and can live on surfaces, making it easy to transmit from patient to patient.

While C. diff infection is generally not harmful to healthy people, if you are sick or in a state where your immune system is not at peak performance, this infection can be very serious. It occurs in the colon and intestines. It causes diarrhea and abdominal pain. It can lead to dehydration and could morph into colitis.

C. diff infections are often related to the use of antibiotics. In fact, taking antibiotics or being in a health care facility increases your risk of getting this infection. Proper hand washing is essential to preventing it, but others can still leave it on surfaces, so effective cleaning must be done regularly. In the hospital, infection control measures have to be followed exactly to help stop the spread of this bacteria. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
