Hospital infection progress

16th April 2008

Ipswich Hospital has now made the necessary improvements required by the Healthcare Commission over infection control.

The Commission said the trust is now compliant with the requirements of an improvement notice, issued on 21 February 2008, which required immediate changes to infection control practices. In an earlier unannounced visit the Commission had found four breaches of duty in the hygiene code. The code, which all NHS trusts must comply to, outlines how trusts can prevent and manage infections such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile.
