Bayhealth Infection Prevention Tip of the Week

Bayhealth has implemented a new policy to rapidly identify potential risk factors for the spread of C. difficile infection (CDI) and suggested treatment measures. The new policy includes the CDI bundle checklist and adult physician order set which:

  • Serves as a guide for rapid identification, implementation of treatment and environmental measures used to limit potential cases and minimize complications associated with CDI.
  • The bundle checklist and physician order set offers clear, concise strategies to ensure uniform CDI management and prevention.
  • The checklist is comprised of individual sections to address the role of each multidisciplinary member and offer suggestions for CDI treatment from the CDC and other evidence based sources.
