Hospital broke hygiene rules31st December 2008
Homerton University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in east London has been ordered to make urgent improvements after it breached hygiene rules.
The Healthcare Commission has served the hospital with an improvement notice over infection control after inspectors found dirty bedpans and commodes in the hospital and criticised its decontamination of surgical equipment and its staff training. The breaches of the hygiene regulations were discovered during an unannounced visit in November. The trust has since appointed a team to address the issues raised.
