New Bacteria in Doctor's Offices

Difficile (DIFISILE) is typically found in hospitals, a study out Wednesday reports a substantial number of people contracted the bug who hadn’t been in a hospital, but had recently visited the doctor or dentist. The CDC is so concerned that they’re starting a new study to try and assess nationally if patients are indeed getting the bacteria in doctors’ offices, since it is possible the patients had it to begin with and went to the doctor seeking help.
