Two patients die and 14 still fighting deadly superbug as C.diff hits hospital

Post  wyatt1 on Fri Dec 19, 2014 1:44 pm

Two patients have died after contracting a hospital infection in an outbreak that has hit another 14 people.
Edinburgh Royal Infirmary is now investigating a ‘cluster’ of cases of deadly Clostridium difficile, it was confirmed last night.
It comes only weeks after the damning inquiry into the Vale of Leven hospital outbreak, which killed 34.



Last month, a report found at least 34 patients at Vale of Leven hospital in Dunbartonshire died as a result of ‘systemic failures’ by hospital managers.
Doctors failed to notice the infection tearing through the wards for five months, while the hospital’s infection control doctor had not been there for more than a year.

When my dad was fighting Cancer he ended up in hospital due to potassium levels.
He contracted C-Dif whilst there and I always thought that's what killed him, not the Cancer, but a superbug.
