Homerton infection control practices

5th March 2009

The Healthcare Commission has announced that Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has made necessary improvements in infection control.

The trust is now compliant with the requirements of an improvement notice issued in December which required immediate changes to infection control practices following a two day unannounced visit last November. The trust has been assessed on how it was following the hygiene code and serious breaches relating to the decontamination of equipment, inadequate mandatory staff training and a lack of follow up to internal audits.
