C diff probe, nurses questioned

14th January 2009

Police are to question nurses over deaths from Clostridium difficile at the Vale of Leven Hospital in Dunbartonshire.

A C diff outbreak was linked to 18 deaths and a report, which identified failures in hygiene and infection control, was passed to prosecutors last year. Police are working alongside the Health and Safety Executive, which has been reviewing the hospital's paperwork in relation to infection control procedures. The Royal College of Nursing said its members would meet with legal advisers before being interviewed by police.
