Prevention of Environmental Cross-Contamination 
with Clostridium difficile bacteria   
using Sklar Disinfectant 



                                      Technical Bulletin 
                        Scientific and Technical Support Group 
                                     Sklar Instruments 
                                       November, 2003 



Clostridium difficile is an anaerobic, spore-forming, Gram-positive rod. Concerns relating to outbreaks and   
colonization with C. difficile have been reported from hospitals and long-term facilities for the past decade. Endemic   
infections due to C. difficile have identified that patient-to-patient transmission of this microorganism can occur via 
hands, contaminated patient-care equipment or environmental surfaces. 

Recommendations for Control and Prevention: 

• Facilities with endemic C. difficile should focus control efforts on          intensive care units and other areas where   
   the transmission rate is highest. Such units may serve as a reservoir of C. difficile enabling spread to other   
  units when patients are transferred.
 
• In facilities with ongoing C. difficile transmission, assess the adequacy and frequency of cleaning procedures   
 for disinfecting environmental surfaces such as bedrails, carts, doorknobs, faucet handles, toilet seats,   
 computer terminals, knobs of electronic equipment such patient-care monitors and bedside commodes and   
   ensure procedure compliance. Surviving C. difficile exposed to the air on surfaces for periods exceeding 4- 6   
   hours will form spores rendering them impossible to kill on environmental surfaces. Frequent cleaning and   
   disinfection will help to reduce transmission by killing C. difficile bacteria prior to its ability to form spores.   
 CDC guidelines recommend the use of an EPA registered disinfectant for cleaning against C.difficile. 

• If possible, dedicate the use of medical equipment and devices to a single patient or cohort. If such items are   
used between patients, clean and disinfect them thoroughly and frequently, at least every four (4) hours,   u  
sing Sklar Disinfectant solution as per its labeled instructions. 

Extensive environmental contamination with C.difficile has been noted in some studies. A recent laboratory study 
verified the ability of Sklar Disinfectant (EPA Registration Number 70144-1-31118) to kill C. difficile within 3 minutes   
at 20°C/69°F. by methods of the AOAC Germicidal Spray Test.
