C-diff Resource “Toolkit”

The Association for Health Facility Survey Agencies (AHFSA), in partnership with The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), have collaborated to promote the prevention and control of Clostridium Difficile infection (CDI) in long-term care facilities by creating an extensive resource “toolkit”. This “toolkit” includes resources related to hand hygiene, appropriate use of contact precautions/personal protective equipment, antibiotic stewardship, CDI risk factors, the history of CDI, and more. This can be a valuable resource for training staff in infection prevention and control.
