RESEARCH NEWS: Winnie Mutai et al publication on comorbidities and comorbidity measures in predicting healthcare facility-onset Clostridioides difficile infection in Kenya

Clostridioides difficile is primarily associated with hospital-acquired diarrhoea. The disease burden is aggravated in patients with comorbidities due to increased likelihood of polypharmacy, extended hospital stays and compromised immunity. The study aimed to investigate comorbidity predictors of healthcare facility-onset Cdifficile infection (HO-CDI) in hospitalized patients.
