    New CDC regulations Jan. 1, 2013: Mandatory reporting of C diff cases.

    If you contract C diff, do everybody a favor and make sure your doctor is aware of this new requirement by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):

    "[H]ospitals must report [to CDC] Clostridium difficile Infection (CDI) LabID events with a specimen collection date on or after January 1, 2013 and associated facility-wide (minus neonatal units) denominator data starting on January 1, 2013 from all inpatient locations in the acute care hospital."
