Deaths involving MRSA and Clostridium difficile – data reports for individual institutions from Office for National Statistics

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has published its first report on deaths involving methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) by individual communal establishment (for example, hospitals, hospices, nursing homes) where the death took place.

The report contains data for establishments which had a total of more than 2,500 deaths from all causes in both periods 2001-05 and 2002-06. These institutions (217 hospitals and one hospice) account for more than 80 per cent of the total number of deaths involving MRSA and C. difficile in England and Wales.
