Abstract

US state and territorial laws were reviewed to identify Clostridium difficile infection reporting mandates. Twenty states require reporting either under state law or by incorporating federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ reporting requirements. Although state law mandates are more common, the incorporation of federal reporting requirements has been increasing.
