One C. difficile death and two new cases at Guelph General Hospital

A Guelph General Hospital patient died over the weekend with C. difficile he acquired at the facility. As well, the hospital confirmed Monday that it has two additional patients with hospital-acquired C. difficile.

“The cause of the death is being directly linked to C. difficile,” said Richard Ernst, the hospital’s president and chief executive. He noted the elderly victim, who tested positive earlier this month, was in hospital for serious medical conditions unrelated to the bacterium.

“This was a patient who contracted it while in hospital,” Ernst said, declining further information on the patient because of confidentiality.

It brings to two the number of Guelph General deaths connected to C. difficile, this year. An elderly patient died in June after contracting the illness.

The two new cases reported Monday are in addition to two cases Friday.
