C Diff is a spore forming anaerobic organism found commonly in soil and the intestinal tracts of many animals. It can be cultured from the stool of 80% of newborn babies and up to 3% of healthy adults. However, when normal bowel flora are compromised due to antibiotic treatment, bowel surgery or long term steroid therapy, levels of C Diff in the bowel rise causing inflammation of the bowel wall.
The average costs associated with C diff including increased length of stay, isolation precautions, antibiotic treatment, tests and investigations have been estimated at up to $8,000 per patient2,3
