Rate per 1000 Patient Days
C-Diff Rate
One Patient’s Story
• 72 yrs of age, diagnosis pneumonia, prescribed
antibiotics
• CDI, decreased urine output, kidney failure with
hemodialysis for remainder of her life
• OR for colectomy - colon removed, wears a bag
• Slow recovery, CCU, on ventilator
• Stroke, speech and mobility issues
• Readmitted three times
• Family members assist with care
Causative Factors
• How healthcare facilities contribute to CDI:
– Insufficient hand hygiene
– Insufficient environmental cleanliness
– Poor antibiotic stewardship
• Patient risk factors:
– Advanced age and underlying illness
– Certain medications
– Immunosuppression
Two studies highlight contamination of
hospital environment with C. diff. spores as
a major risk factor.
Dubberke and colleagues, 2003
Shaughnessy and colleagues, 2006
• “Both studies raise the issue of contamination of
the hospital environment with C. diff. spores as a
- if not THE – major risk factor for nosocomial
CDI. This issue deserves much greater
attention than it has received in the past.

Learned About Our Microsystems
by Assessing Our 5 P Data –
Patients, Professional, Purpose, Patterns, Processes
• Expectations for work performance not
clear to staff
• Difficult to hold staff accountable
• Staff received little training
• Staff feels no power to improve work
• Communication processes cumbersome
Workflow - Fishbone
MATERIALS
PROCESS
Unclear expectations
Do not have correct equipment
New approaches are needed
Poor training, needs update
In disrepair
Communication
customers unawaare
Tight budget
Outdated job flows
Lack of a sense of accountability
Communication
Different levels of urgency
Short staff at times
Staff set in their ways
Building
No laundry chutes
Small soiled rooms
Large floor area
Focus on area
Lack of trust in supervisors
Different skill levels
Staff overwhelmed
Perception of unfair workload
PEOPLE
Carpet hard to clean
ENVIRONMENT
Changes in location of depts
with no notice
Work areas are not
defined and have
no task lists or
frequencies
Staff Engagement
• Daily Huddles
• Patient stories
• Making improvements, raising the level of
professionalism
• Invite Infection Prevention to your meetings
• Data: Infections by unit, Patient survey results
• Bulletin board turned into ‘Staff Feedback’
• Include EVS staff in hospital and community
news letters
• By getting them involved…ask for their opinion

• PX-UV Light treatment
Focus on the Environment
PX-UV Light
Xenex PX-UV Light : Taking
Disinfection to the Next Level
• Destroys all major classes of
microorganisms that cause hospitalacquired infections.
• Uses high intensity broad spectrum UV light
to penetrate the cell walls, fusing their DNA,
leading to instant damage and the inability
to reproduce or mutate.
• 99.99% of germs and spores are killed.
• Goal: Flash all discharged patient rooms;
Flash OR’s & ED daily.
