C. Difficile

Hmmm, now who should really be answering questions about the killer hospitals? Let me see. Ah - 'But the board had other priorities. It was focusing on plans to build a hospital under the private finance initiative to replace outdated premises.' The private finance initative!
Open the pod bay doors, Hal.


  1. Clostridium difficile -- an exceedingly scary bug. My husband contracted it after an emergency appendectomy and hospital stay. He was ill for months and lost about 30 lbs.

    Hospitals now are like hospitals in the 19th century: Avoid them unless you're going to die otherwise/anyway.

  2. I came down with food poisoning last week at my daughters wedding along with 64 other guests. After contacting the EHO and providing stool samples, i was shocked to note that i was tested for C diff and not any food poisoning conditions. Does this show the problem is alot bigger than we know. Does the C diff virus now exsist in Hotels, restuarants, etc. Is there a cover up !!!
