U.K. hospitals winning the war on MRSA, but C. diff is making a comeback

The Daily Mail, July 18, 2008
The number of MRSA infections in England's hospitals has fallen 11% from January to March 2007, to 966 cases. But the rate of Clostridium difficile in patients aged 65 and over rose 6% over the same quarter, to 10,586 cases. "We are tackling infections on every front with a relentless focus on cleanliness, best practice guidance on antibiotic prescribing, isolating patients and more infection control staff with more powers to help drive down infection rates," said U.K. Health Secretary Alan Johnson.
