Abstract:
This thesis investigated the aerial dissemination of Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) in the clinical environment and the contribution that this transmission route made to contamination levels. This thesis describes evidence for the aerial dissemination of C difficile, a finding which may help to explain why Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is so persistent within hospitals and difficult to eradicate.
