Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) is an infection that causes severe disease and death. About 29, 300 people have died in the U.S. within 30 days of receiving a diagnosis of C. difficile. The majority of these deaths were among patients with health care-associated infection. The magnitude and scope of the infection is evolving. Hospitalization for C. difficile infection doubled in the U.S. from 2000 through 2010 and is continuing to increase. This infection is the leading cause of gastroenteritis-associated death and was the cause of 14,000 deaths in 2007. It is the most common cause of health care-associated infections in U.S. hospitals. C. difficile has resulted in excess health care costs of up to $4.8 billion for acute care facilities alone. Moreover, increasing reports of C. difficile are occurring outside of acute care facilities, including environments within communities and nursing homes, where infection may be diagnosed and treated without hospitalization.

In 2009, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted active population- and laboratory-based surveillance for C. difficile across 10 U.S. geographic areas. The examination concluded that C. difficile was the culprit of almost half a million infections in the U.S. in 2011. Approximately 83,000 of these patients with such infections experienced at least one recurrence, and 29,000 died within 30 days of receiving a diagnosis. Individuals 65 years of age or older, whites, and females had the highest incidences. Only about 24% of cases occurred within hospital settings and nearly 345, 400 cases occurred outside of hospitals. This indicates that the prevention of C. difficile infection needs to expand beyond hospital settings. C. difficile infection must continue to be closely observed in order to create effective preventative measures. In the meantime, long-term care settings such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities must stay vigilant when overseeing their elderly residents. Contact our office today, if you have experienced poor treatment as a resident in one of these types of facilities.

Client Reviews
Excellent staff and the epitome of genuine, honest, and beyond helpful. I was lost and running out of time until I found Yeroushalmi law office. I am beyond grateful and had the pleasure of working with such amazing people who look out for your best interest. Anonymous review
Ben Yeroushalmi accepted my case with much understanding and patience. He went above and beyond with the defense lawyers to reach a fair settlement. He explained the complete case process (as I had never filed a case with anyone) Ben kept my sister and I notified of every email or correspondence he had with the opposing council. Gloria
Ben is an outstanding litigator, and human being. He took on our case, as if it was his own. He paid close attention to details. His guidance was invaluable. He was very clear and concise, in explaining all potential scenarios to us. He spoke eloquently, and straight to the point at all times. Ben is a true professional, with a passion for his craft.

I had a heartfelt and memorable experience with Ben , very genuine and I can tell he loves what he does. His determination shows beautifully and it is amazing. In my opinion it is very rare you find people who love what they're doing and it shows. Not wanting to get religious on an review but, God introduced me to Ben for a reason. Summer
Ben was wonderful. He took our case when no one else was interested or wanted way to much money. We would highly recommend Ben because he really listens and takes your situation into consideration. We settled our case and we were only unhappy with one thing and that was the confidentiality clause but that was not Ben's fault it came with the deal. June
