Actually, it isn't a new germ. A lot of patients get it when they are on 
multiple antibiotics. Good handwashing technique is a must when there is 
c-diff. (c-dificile).  Causes severe diarrhea.

  yes it is.  story was about Grace Voros, 85 who took a minor fall.  went to 
hospital for x-ray.  no broken bones, but contracted c. diff and died.   
article was in aarp bulletin for november 2008.  if someone will tell me how to 
copy article and attach to email, will do.  dorlis

make sure all coming into your room wash hands throughly with lots of soap and 
water. also bed rails, etc should all be washed down. seems lately, we can get 
sicker in hospital than at home. one lady died from it. dorlis
