Death from MRSA, following "awful" care in local hospital.

NHS critic's father dies after 'awful care' - Telegraph


"A former nurse who tackled Tony Blair over NHS failures in her daughter's treatment has lost her father to the MRSA superbug.

During the 2001 election campaign Carol Maddocks confronted the Prime Minister during an appearance on the BBC's Question Time programme and told him that the health service was letting down her daughter Alice, who had a rare blood condition. She was later invited to Downing Street where he pledged funding to improve registries of bone marrow donors to help save Alice's life.

Now Mrs Maddocks has described how her father Harry Lister, 74, died an agonising death after contracting MRSA following "awful" care in their local hospital.

"My father was let down by the NHS and we, as a family, are really angry about it. Society now accepts that when we go into hospital we could contract MRSA, but this should not be a risk we run," she told The Sunday Times."

  1. Germs and MRSAs might be small, but they pose a big problem in healthcare environments. Man & Machine has spent years developing products to fight the spread of MRSAs and other harmful microbes. MMI has created keyboards with no cracks, crevices or seams, which means that germs do not have a place to hide and grow. So disinfecting our really cool keyboards is quick and easy

    Our non-porous, latex-free, silicone rubber keyboards and mice are waterproof, dust proof and highly mess-resistant. Most importantly, their rugged construction allows them to be cleaned with alcohol, 10% bleach solutions and other chemical disinfectants.

    In environments such as hospitals, where MRSAs can cause serious infections, Man & Machine keyboards definitely puts the power of infection control at the users’ fingertips.
