Abstract

While the risks for Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) are well-recognized, the basis for the significant variation in CDI incidence found in long-term care across the United States is poorly understood. These authors examined regional risk factors for CDI across Veteran Health Administration long-term care facilities (LTCFs) from 2006 to 2012. VHA is divided into 86 different regions, and there are significant differences between them in the risk of CDI.
