Some doctors 'don't wash hands'

9th November 2007

A report on NHS hygiene in Wales has shown that some doctors doing hospital ward rounds fail to wash their hands.

The auditor general for Wales says more work is needed to give health staff education and guidance and patients are also being urged to challenge hospital staff if they are unhappy with cleanliness standards.

The findings follow spot checks on two NHS hospitals in a crackdown on hygiene ordered by health minister Edwina Hart. The report from Healthcare Inspectorate Wales revealed that further investigations have taken place at nine NHS hospitals and independent healthcare providers.
