Glasgow hospital postpones ops

6th November 2007

A health trust has suspended all planned orthopaedic surgery at a Glasgow hospital after six of its patients who were operated on became infected with a number of bugs.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said the decision was taken after the number of wound infections at the Southern General Hospital had increased, though emergency orthopaedic operations will continue. Hospital bosses say a number of different types of bacteria were causing the infections, though they were unable to say what they were.
