Here at Tylers Solicitors, we specialise in medical negligence claims to ensure our clients get the compensation that they need to recover from their illnesses. CDI can be a painful and uncomfortable condition which you shouldn’t have to suffer with. By making compensation claims against the medical facility responsible for giving you the illness, you could be helping them to offer an improved treatment for their patients and prevent C-Diff from spreading further.

What is CDI, and Can I Make C Difficile Claims Against my NHS Hospital?

Clostridium difficile infections, commonly known as C Difficile, C-Diff and CDI, are still one of the most common illnesses which spread throughout NHS hospitals. They are a major cause of in-hospital diarrhoea and are extremely contagious in areas with poor hygiene.

C-Diff itself is a kind of bacteria which is related to both tetanus and botulism. Clostridium difficile has two different forms which can cause problems in a hospital environment. There is an active, infectious form which cannot survive outside of the human body for very long. There is also a non-active form, known as a spore, which can survive in pretty much any environment for prolonged periods. These spores cannot lead to infections directly, but they can transform into the active form of the disease when ingested in a human body.

These spores are most commonly found in medical areas with accommodation, such as hospitals or nursing homes. They will commonly adhere to bedpans, furniture, toilet seats, telephones and other publicly-used equipment.

If you’ve recently spent time in a nursing home or NHS hospital and you’re experiencing the symptoms associated with C-Diff, then you may be entitled to make C Difficile claims. While this illness is often relatively minor, it can lead to a range of other symptoms which can make a real impact on your health. In fact, in the worst-case scenarios, you might suffer from:

  • Severe Dehydration – Thanks to the persistent diarrhoea, you can suffer from severe dehydration which can result in acute kidney failure.
  • Toxic Megacolon – Your colon can swell from trapped gases, which can cause a great deal of pain.
  • Peritonitis – It is possible that your colon linin can become inflamed. It can also begin to wear-away, resulting in holes within the lining. The holes in the colon lining can lead to a range of different life-threatening issues, including peritonitis. This is the most serious potential symptom of this illness and can result in multiple organ failure if not treated immediately.

Where Am I Likely to Contract C Difficile Compensation Claims?

A small percentage of the UK population has C-Diff already living in their colons. Naturally healthy bacteria keep it under control in these instances, so there will be no symptoms associated with the illness. Clostridium difficile can be encouraged to flourish in hospital when the patient is treated with certain antibiotics.

Therefore, whether you’ve been treated with antibiotics which allowed the illness to spread through your body or if you’ve been infected with the disease while staying in hospital, you could be able to make C difficile claims. The medical negligence compensation that you can receive can go a long way towards helping with your recovery.

Is My Hospital Reducing the Risk of C Difficile Claims?

There are ways in which your hospital can work to reduce the risk of C-Diff spreading throughout its wards. If they aren’t making a visible effort to stop the spread of this illness, and other hospital-related sicknesses, then you may be able to make a compensation claim.

Just some of the techniques include:

  • Visitors and medical staff washing their hands regularly.
  • Patients suffering from C-Diff should be identified and, if possible, isolated from the rest of the hospital.
  • Areas which are vulnerable to spore infestation should be cleaned on a regular basis.
