What Is Domestic Violence?
People of any race, gender, religion, socioeconomic background, or age can be victims of domestic violence, which is defined as a pattern of behavior in a relationship that elicits physical, sexual, or emotional actions to control one individual over another. Domestic violence can occur between spouses, couples, and even family members. Common behavioral patterns that indicate an abusive relationship include intimidation, threats, manipulation, and insults that can escalate into physical altercations. While the spectrum of abusive relationships is wide and varied, any form of domestic violence should be reported immediately.
How Many Americans Are Affected by Domestic Violence?
According to a CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey in 2005, an estimated 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men are victims of domestic violence in their lives. A related study cites approximately 1200 deaths, 2 million injuries among women, and 600,000 injuries among men resulting from intimate partner violence.

Biohazard threats come in many forms, but all should be eliminated immediately with the help of a professional cleanup company. Clostridium difficile, or C. difficile, is one such toxic bacterium that can live in soil, water, feces, and the air. While it is a common concern for health care facilities where the risk of spreading the bacteria is much higher among infected patients, C. difficile can also develop in unsanitary buildings and homes.
C. difficile, which is commonly found in human and animal feces, may be spread to others through direct contact or infected surfaces if people fail to wash their hands thoroughly. The bacteria can survive in a room for months at a time, making it easy to unknowingly ingest. C. difficile is known to largely occur among patients who are taking antibiotics, which may account for its prevalence in hospitals and nursing homes.
The majority of people who come into contact with C. difficile will not experience severe symptoms. However, unpleasant symptoms can develop, especially among unhealthy people and those who continue to be exposed to the bacteria. Typical moderate symptoms include diarrhea and abdominal cramping. More extreme C. difficile cases can result in colitis. People who experience prolonged fever, nausea, dehydration, and blood in your stool should seek medical attention.
Health care facilities follow strict procedures to prevent the spread of C. difficile, including hand washing and thorough cleaning. It is generally recommended that people avoid overusing antibiotics, which can increase your risk of C. difficile infection. Finally, it is crucial that professional cleanup services are performed following unsanitary medical messes to prevent the transmission of toxic bacteria.
