This infection is so very scary for us crohn's patients. The virulent form they are talking about seems to be all over and very difficult to get rid of. I think all we can do is educate ourselves, insist on doctors and health care professionals washing their hands. I noticed when I was in the hospital that most don't wash and rely on purell dispenser. C.diff is NOT killed with Purell or hand sanitizers and I thought I read that it helps the bug spread. Hand washing with hot, sudsy water while rubbing hands together for a long duration (sing happy birthday song twice) is our only protection.
Hoping none of us will ever get this form.
