The gastrointestinal tract infection known as Pseudomembranous Colitis caused by bacteria Clostridium difficile (C. difficile). The massive overpopulation of C. difficile can result in conditions ranging from mildly debilitating antibiotic associated diarrhoea to life-threatening toxic mega-colon. This study will examine whether having Vancomycin as part of the antibiotic treatment regimen for various types of sepsis leads to a decreased incidence of antibiotic induced pseudomembranous colitis formation when compared to other antibiotic treatments alone without Vancomycin.
