Clostridium difficile

In response to rising rates of Clostridium difficile increasingly resistant to treatment, GNYHA and the United Hospital Fund, in cooperation with the New York State Department of Health, launched this initiative to reduce the rates of infections in participating hospitals. The C. difficile Collaborative concluded in 2010, but toolkits and resources are available for member hospitals’ use.
