Steam cleaning in superbug battle

2nd March 2009

The fight to rid hospitals in Scotland of infections such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile is to be stepped up.

Hospitals are to get 250 more regular steam cleaning machines under a £400,000 investment from the Scottish Government. Twenty machines are already available, but the investment will mean every health board has its own equipment. NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde will get 61 of the cleaning machines, which cost £1,600 each. NHS Lothian will receive 32 machines while NHS Grampian will have 22.
