WHAT IS Clostridium difficle?
It is a bacteria that has developed resistance to most commonly used antibiotics. When exposed to air it forms a spore that allows it to remain in the environment for long periods of time. It causes diarrhea and more serious intestinal conditions such as colitis. It is the most frequently identified cause of hospital-acquired diarrheal infection.

1/2 MILLION ILLNESSES EACH YEAR CAUSED BY C. difficile
The United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in collaboration with state health departments estimate that C. difficile causes almost half a million illnesses each year in the U.S. resulting in 29,300 deaths. About one quarter of these illnesses occurred in hospital settings.

"Dec. 2014 marked our one year anniversary post OxyCide implementation. The hospital acquired infection rate has significantly declined. [In 2013] we experienced a 5.96% Hospital Acquired Infection rate. [In 2014] our rate dropped to 1.6%. We attribute the change to OxyCide as a major factor in the reduced rate."

- P. Livingston, Director of Environmental Services (Lincoln, NE)
