Superbug ultimatum to dirty hospitals - Telegraph
"Hospitals will be served with "improvement notices" if they fail to tackle MRSA and Clostridium difficile, the health watchdog announced today.
Experts from the Healthcare Commission will make "spot checks" on 120 NHS trusts in England over the next year.
Those that are not up to scratch could be served with an improvement notice or be put in special measures.
The crackdown comes after figures showed that C.diff is still on the rise.
Health Protection Agency statistics released in April identified 55,681 cases of the potentially fatal bug in patients aged 65 and over in England in 2006. That figure was up eight per cent on reported cases in 2005."
