Fewer than expected cases of healthcare-acquired C.Difficile

St. Tammany Health System employs robust enhanced disinfection protocols to keep our patients and staff safe. Lytbot forms part of our overall disinfection strategy and is one of the collective factors that contributes to our low numbers of C. diff. and hospital infections.
