We continue to make considerable progress in combating hospital onset C diff at Swedish. With the implementation of UV light cleaning throughout the hospital, focus on correct testing for C diff, as well as  CNC engagement and the impending RN driven ordering protocol, we are attacking C diff on many fronts.  We encourage both RNs and MDs to review the upcoming order sets and appreciate any continued feedback.

Look for the new door magnet reminders for specimen collection, as well as in-room reminders to wash hands with soap and water instead of use of hand sanitizer.

Going forward, Swedish will continue to be a leader in reducing the incidence of Hospital onset C diff, and as always providing excellent care for our patients.
