Clostridium Difficile Infections
Have you suffered an infection after a visit to hospital? The Clostridium Difficile (C Diff) is one of the two major hospital superbugs that are often contracted after surgery. If you have contracted C Diff what are your rights and options?
C Diff (Clostridium Difficile)
C DIFF or C Difficile can be acquired whilst in hospital receiving medical treatment. Poor hygiene can be the reason for the infection. C Diff is actually a natural bacterium which inhabits the body. The natural balance of this bacterium can change following an operation through the use of antibiotics. Initial symptoms are diarrhoea progressing to severe dehydration or even death. Early diagnosis is therefore essential.
It is of note that alcohol gels are inactive against these types of spores and the only reliable method to reduce hand transmission is soap and water.
