AHRQ has released an updated report as part of the HCUP Findings-At-A-Glance series, which provides a look at different topics across a broad range of health policy issues related to hospital use and costs. The report, Adult, Nonmaternal Inpatient Stays Related to Clostridioides difficile: National Trends, 2011-2016 and 2019, focuses on the burden to hospitals of one type of healthcare-associated infection. It examines the changes in rates of hospitalizations related to C. diff, including those in which C. diff is not present on admission (hospital onset) and those present on admission (community acquired).
