November is Clostridioides difficile Awareness Month

Clostridioides difficile (also known as C. diff)​ is estimated to cause almost half a million illnesses in the United States each year. C. diff is a germ that causes diarrhea and colitis (an inflammation of the colon) and can be life threatening. Most cases of C. diff occur when you’ve been taking antibiotics, and about 1 in 5 patients who get C. diff will get it again.

Together with their partners, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)​ is working year-round to reduce C. diff infections and protect patients. This C. diff Awareness Month, we encourage you to check out and share our C. diff resources to raise awareness about the importance of stopping the spread of this deadly bacteria: Get practical advice on how to prevent the spread of C. diff in the hospital and at home.
