Dr. Oneto said, “Through this clinic, we will provide access to high-level care to a number of new consults, as well as existing patients, who are recovering from the infection. It is my pleasure to partner with the C Diff Foundation and lend my expertise to the management and hopefully, eradication of this debilitating disease.”

“We are delighted with the immediate and overwhelming response from the patient community. It is a testament to the needs of those suffering from this infection. With this clinic, we hope to bring awareness, education and more importantly, cutting edge treatment to the general public,” stated Dr. Feuerstadt.

“The clinics demonstrate Doctor Oneto and Feuerstadt’s commitment over the years raising
C. diff. awareness while providing management of those suffering with
a C. diff. infection. Patients who might not otherwise be able to gain access to providers sub-specializing and caring for those with this infection will have this opportunity available.  Doctor’s Oneto and Feuerstadt’s dedication resonates within the C. diff. community and we are grateful for their participation and support.” stated Nancy Caralla, Founding President and Executive Director of the C Diff Foundation.

It is the most common Healthcare-associated infection affecting an estimated 450,000 people annually in the United States alone with ~28,000 deaths from complications of this infection. This infection accounts for ~16% of all healthcare-associated infections.

In the USA: Nearly half a million Americans suffer from Clostridioides difficile (C. diff.) infections in a single year according to a study released on February 25, 2015, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

**Approximately 29,000 patients died within 30 days of the initial diagnosis of C. difficile. Of those, about 15,000 deaths were estimated to be directly attributable to C. difficile infections (CDI), making C. difficile a very important cause of infectious disease death in the United States alone. More than 80 percent of the deaths associated with C. difficile occurred among Americans aged 65 years or older. C. difficile causes an inflammation of the colon and deadly diarrhea.

We are pleased to share  “C. diff. Spores and More ™”  with you because, as advocates
of C. diff., we know the importance of this cutting-edge new weekly radio show
and what it means for our Foundation’s community worldwide.

Hard Facts: Deaths and illnesses are much higher than reports have shown Nearly half a million Americans suffered from Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) infections in a single year according to a study released today, February 25, 2015, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

Previous studies indicate that C. diff. has become the most common
microbial cause of Healthcare-Associated Infections found in U.S. hospitals
driving up costs to $4.8 billion each year in excess health care costs in acute
care facilities alone. Approximately two-thirds of C. diff. infections
were found to be associated with an inpatient stay in a health care facility,
only 24% of the total cases occurred in patients while they were hospitalized.
The study also revealed that almost as many cases occurred in nursing homes as
in hospitals and the remainder of individuals acquired the
Healthcare-Associated infection, C. diff., recently discharged from
a health care facility.

This new study finds that 1 out of every 5 patients with the
Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAI), C. diff., experience
a recurrence of the infection and 1 out of every 9 patients over the
age of 65 diagnosed with a HAI – C. diff. infection died
within 30 days of being diagnosed. Older Americans are quite vulnerable
to this life-threatening diarrhea infection. The CDC study also found
that women and Caucasian individuals are at an increased risk of
acquiring a C. diff. infection.
The CDC Director, Dr. Tom Frieden, MD, MPH said, “C. difficile
infections cause immense suffering and death for thousands of Americans
each year.” “These infections can be prevented by improving antibiotic
prescribing and by improving infection control in the health care system.
CDC hopes to ramp up prevention of this deadly infection by supporting
State Antibiotic Resistance Prevention Programs in all 50 states.”

“This does not include the number of C. diff. infections taking place
and being treated in other countries.”  “The  C Diff Foundation supports hundreds
of communities by sharing the Foundation’s mission and
Raising C. diff. awareness to healthcare professionals,patients,
families,  and communities working towards a shared goal ~  witnessing a
reduction of newly diagnosed C. diff. cases by 2020 .”
