Infection closes hospital unit

25th July 2007

The Intensive Care Unit at Belfast City Hospital was closed to new admissions after it emerged that two patients were found to have a bacterial infection.

A deep clean of the unit was put into operation while the two affected patients were treated in isolation in other wards. Other emergency patients were cared for in the hospital’s High Dependency Unit. The hospital said an investigation was launched to establish how the patients contracted what it described as a “multi-resistant acinetobacter infection.?
