Another outbreak? That is a scandal, where else in the country does this happen with such regularity?
I'm sure APH is not the only hospital with regular outbreaks such as this. Its probably down to the fact that when they strip beds, they don't use hot water, bleach, soap. They use what look like over-sized Baby
wipes to wipe the surfaces. Even then, they haven't always checked under the bed for waste - e.g. tissues, paper towels, discarded rubber gloves. I have witnessed this and other horrible infection control no-no's. Like dried blood on the tubes and finger clamp of a blood ox/pulse monitor...
Bring back carbolic soap!!
