NI hospitals need to 'improve'16th October 2012
The Regulation Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA) has confirmed that five out of six of Northern Ireland's biggest hospitals have needed return visits for inspections.
The RQIA said the Ulster, Altnagelvin, Craigavon Area, Belfast's Royal Victoria and Belfast City hospital needed return inspections, while Antrim Area was the only hospital which did not need to be re-visited. During the inspections, the RQIA discovered some hospitals had not installed automatic taps even though unclean taps were "partly" blamed for the pseudomonas outbreak in 2011 which caused the deaths of four babies.
