Hygiene code notice for Ashford

19th June 2008

The Healthcare Commission has issued an improvement notice to the Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Trust requiring changes to its infection control practices.

The trust was found to be in breach of the hygiene code, which sets out 11 mandatory duties for NHS trusts to reduce and control healthcare-associated infections. Specifically, its facilities to clean mattresses was inadequate and it had not made steps to assess risks associated with the use of bench top sterilisation equipment. The trust has been given until mid July to address the issues raised.
