NHS Trust hospital is warned about poor hygiene and infection control practice

NHS trust warned over hygiene breaches

Extract from the Telegraph:

"An NHS trust has been given a warning after inspectors found filthy commodes and bloodstains on a bed rail and wall.

The Healthcare Commission served Bromley Hospitals NHS Trust with an improvement notice over poor practice in tackling infection control.

Thick layers of dust and evidence of poor decontamination procedures for surgical equipment were also found by investigators.

The trust runs three hospitals in south London: the Princess Royal University Hospital, Orpington Hospital and Beckenham Hospital.

The commission carried out an unannounced inspection at the Princess Royal University Hospital on Jan 21 and 22.

It found that the trust was "failing in its duty to provide and maintain a clean and appropriate environment for health care".

Geoff Martin, of the campaign group Health Emergency, said: "Bromley Hospitals has one of the biggest debts anywhere in the country, of almost £100 million.

"They are cutting corners on cleaning because they have been effectively bankrupted by the cost of a PFI deal at the Princess Royal. This is the harsh reality of PFI coming home to roost.""
