Surprise hygiene inspections for Scottish hospitals11th November 2008
Scotland's health secretary Nicola Sturgeon has said all hospitals in Scotland will be subject to "unannounced inspections" to ensure hygiene standards are being enforced.
The inspections come as part of a consultation on controlling infection. Ms Sturgeon has sent a letter to hospital chiefs to say that in new hospitals "all patients will be treated in single rooms and that in refurbished wards and hospitals at least 50% of rooms must be single".
