Hospital bans tinsel31st October 2007
Christmas decorations have been banned from wards at a Hampshire hospital in a bid to tackle infections such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile.
The Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester has been trying to reduce the infections but had 13 cases of MRSA between April 2006 and March 2007 compared with its target of 12. The trust stress the move is not about ‚Äúcancelling Christmas‚Ä? but about cutting down the risk of infection. The hospital says other festive activities are planned to make up for the lack of decorations.
