A study found Clostridium difficile cases outnumbered cases of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus by 25% in 28 community hospitals in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, which researchers said could reflect a national trend. Experts said reasons for this increase include improper use of antibiotics and the widespread use of alcohol-based hand cleansers, which do not kill C. difficile spores.
