It is often acquired in hospitals and long-term care settings. The bacterium causes severe diarrhea and can be life-threatening in patients whose health is already compromised.
Clostridium difficile , often referred to as C. difficile , is a bacterium that lives in the intestine. It infects the colon walls, causing health problems of varying severity.
