Abstract: We implemented universal inpatient Clostridioides difficile screening at an 800-bed hospital. Over 3 years, 2,010 of 47,048 screening tests (4.2%) were positive, with significantly higher rates of C. difficile colonization on transplant units than medical-surgical units: 5.4% (152 of 2,801) versus 4.3% (880 of 20,564), respectively (P = .005). Compliance with screening ranged from 79% to 96%.

“…We should underscore that this approach does not mean that we screen for asymptomatic carriers who do not have diarrhea. 27,28 Finding that 46.6% of all PCR(+)/EIA(+) cases were from stool collected on HD 1 or 2 (Table 2) supports our hypothesis that many cases were POA but not being identified as such after the reporting rules became more stringent in 2015. This percentage exceeds the 25% hypothesized in our model (Fig.…”
