MRSA medics still working

8th April 2008

According to a survey of NHS trusts by the Independent on Sunday, medical staff are being allowed to treat patients after they test positive for bugs, including MRSA.

Many trusts do not screen their staff and do not stop staff working as a matter of course if they carry MRSA. Derek Butler, the chairman of MRSA Action UK, said: "We are talking about people who come in from the outside every day and could well be bringing this infection in with them."
