    Hospital superbug struck almost 45,000 people last year

    According to this article, from the Guardian today, recently released figures show that almost 45,000 patients were infected with the Clostridium Difficile superbug, and that nearly 3 times more patients have died from that, than from MRSA. Some worrying figures there I think:

    Charities and opposition politicians blamed the government for giving inadequate priority to hospital hygiene, but the department said its decision to publish the facts was an indication of its commitment to raising standards. Officials said 44,488 patients, most of them over the age of 65, had been infected by the bacterium in hospital in England last year, up by 25%.
