Clostridium Difficile Infection

Clostridium difficile is the commonest cause of infectious diarrhea in hospitals.

Implement contact precautions for suspected or confirmed C.difficile infection (CDI).

For all patients with CDI, discontinue concurrent antibiotics, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), anti-peristaltic and promotability agents unless these are required. The reason for continuing these medications should be documented.

Medical and surgical management of CDI is based on severity of illness.
