Local hospitals working to fight C. Diff
Rochester, N.Y. - Four local hospitals are working together to fight one of the most common infections caught at hospitals.
Strong, Highland, Unity and Rochester General Hospital have teamed up to prevent the spread of C. Diff, an infection that can impact those taking antibiotics.
It includes sharing cleaning procedures and reducing the misuse of certain antibiotics.
C. Diff rates have dropped 36 percent in local hospitals since the collaboration began.
