HAI - Clostridium difficile (CDI)

Clostridium difficile is a bacterium that may develop due to the prolonged use of antibiotics during healthcare treatment.

Clostridium difficile infections cause diarrhea and more serious intestinal conditions such as colitis. VIMI will promote Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and tools to the healthcare community in the Virgin Islands to help end clostridium difficile infections. We will also distribute resources to help the public understand these infections and how to take measures to safeguard their own health when possible.
