Are you seeing a lot of C-Diff? There has been so much lately, it seems. Not knowing a whole lot about it and researching it online, some articles say "no cure" others read antibiotics are making people more susceptable to getting it and more articles call it "recurring."
When you are caring for these patients are you gowning up or just gloving? I read in one article that the spores are still alive even in the room and on equipment, AFTER dismissal, for months, if not properly killed with bleach!
Scares me! What if one of our family members get it or what if we get it from caring for the infected patient?
Once a carrier, always a carrier or do they ever really cure someone?
The general public need to know about these super-bugs now and how they are contracted, the terrible symptoms of chronic, watery stools of C-Diff and what if anything alleviates the problem.
