Consumer Reports has releases ratings on hospital performance in relation to the prevention of C.Diff infections nationally. These Ratings reflect how hospitals performed in a snapshot in time, based on data hospitals reported to the CDC between October 2014 and September 2015. The data are released periodically throughout the year. The CDC adjusts to account for factors such as the hospital’s size, whether it’s a teaching hospital, and how common C. diff is in the community around the hospital. The report lists both the hightest and lowest-rated teaching hospitals in the U.S. on C.Diff Prevention, meaning they had an infection rate better or worse than the national benchmark. Included in the report is a rating of hospitals, including teaching and nonteaching hospitals, by state in relation to the preventions of C.Diff infections.
