Re: [AlternativeAnswers] C Diff


Hi Goldie. I used to work in a nursing home and have taken care of people
with C-Diff. Good handwashing prevents the spread, otherwise theres not
much else you can do. Hand sanitizer is not effective in killing C-Diff
bacteria, which many people are unaware of. Something that you should
consider is taking the time to wash your mothers hands frequently, this is
most overlooked in patient care in my opinion. Especially during flu
season! Caregivers will clean the face, back and bottoms but neglect to
wash peoples hands quite often. YUCK!
