Second superbug outbreak kills thirteen in another Norfolk hospital

Second superbug outbreak kills thirteen - Telegraph


"Thirteen patients suffering from the superbug Clostridium difficile have died at another Norfolk hospital.

It was revealed last week that an outbreak of the bug has killed 17 people at the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston, near Great Yarmouth, since December.

Now the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in King’s Lynn, just 65 miles away, has said that 13 of its patients who had C.difficile have died since the start of the year.

The bug, which causes severe diarrhoea, was directly responsible for eight of the deaths and was a contributing factor for the other five.

But the hospital stressed that most of the patients who died, the majority of whom were over 65, already had C.difficile when they were admitted."
