This is a very troubling story I found at the Wall Street Journal

In short, an infection caused by the superbug C diff. is wreaking havoc on patients at hospitals. 

The WSJ has a good run down about how this infection is caused and what hospitals are doing to stop its spread.

One of the most basic ways is to wash your hands with antibacterial soap andn water not alcohol based gels.  Read the article and be an advocate for your health if you go to the doctor.

Yes! you are right. I’ve heard of this and hand washing is the best way to prevent any type of spread. I’m in the medical field and I can tell you first hand that hand washing is a must.
