Growing fears over deadly hospital bugs

The deadly Clostridium difficile hospital bug is on the rise, while MRSA superbug rates are falling too slowly to meet government targets. The Health Protection Agency figures show the C difficile rate rose by 5.5% in England during the first three quarters of 2006 to 42,625. The MRSA rate fell by 5% to 3,391, but if trends continue the target of halving cases by 2008 will be missed. HPA officials said there was still much to be done to get a grip on the bugs.

This is an increasingly serious problem, which PRimage believes needs to be given top priority by health officials and the department of health to resolve!
