A dangerous bacteria that can be antibiotic resistance in people, is now shown to be resistant to efforts to destroy it on surfaces, according to an article on the NBC News website.
Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) has been shown to remain on disposable hospital gowns and stainless steel surfaces even after they're cleaned.
New research has found that C. diff spread easily from disposable gowns often employed in surgery or infection control to stainless steel and vinyl surfaces.
The study suggests that UV light is an option for disinfecting but it can be challenging to make sure all surfaces are fully exposed to the light.See the latest posts on our homepage
