Zero tolerance on infections

14th December 2009

Ann Keen, the government's Health Minister, has said a new MRSA objective will concentrate on trusts that require the most improvement.

The objective wants to see trusts with the highest levels of MRSA acheive the largest improvements. Ms Keen said: "All patients have a right to expect clean, safe care in all settings but some trusts have not improved at the same rates as others. We must reduce MRSA infections across the whole of the NHS so the new objective will introduce the toughest challenges for underperforming organisations. This objective reflects the NHS’ zero tolerance policy for infections."
