The number of superbug infections at St George's Hospital fell in the last quarter of 2007 but the council's health chief has warned infection rates still need careful monitoring. While MRSA rates at the hospital remained constant C Difficile rates jumped in November before falling again in December. A St George's Healthcare Trust spokesman said: The number of cases of C difficile will vary month by month, partly because of a seasonal variation - rates usually peak during winter - but also because the number and type of patients we are seeing.
