Guideline for Isolation Precautions: Preventing Transmission of Infectious Agents in Healthcare Settings 2007

by the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee, Centers For Disease Control & Prevention, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Caregivers should be aware of these official U.S. guidelines for hospitals and health care institutions, requiring that patients with C-Dif or with a history of C-Dif be isolated in private rooms, and that all doctors, nursing and health care staff wear protective gowns and gloves during visits. (See page 81 regarding recommendation to place such a patient in a private room, page 78 et.seq. re gloves, gowns, and other required isolation protections, and Appendix A, page 96, recommending that the duration of such isolation precautions be indefinite for a patient who has or has had a history of C-Dif. In other words, if your elderly loved one has a history of having had C-Dif, he or she should be placed in a private room whenever hospitalized again.
