Consumer Reports Releases Rating on Hospitals Performance on C. Diff Infection Prevention

Share this:

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.
