Hospital acquired infection with colonoscopy?
I'm on the CDC website and they categorize these according to the vehicle of transmission (as opposed to categorizing by bug/virus type).
The transmission vehicles they list are central line catheter, urinary catheter, surgical site, and ventilator.
They do then put C.Diff by itself without regard to how you get it.
My question concerns colonoscopy. Are you risking HIA with colonoscopy? Seems like you would? A particular one?
I have no health care background and am chicken/paranoid.
