Infection control and prevention
We have strict measures in place to ensure that you are protected to the best of our ability. These include mandatory training in infection prevention and control for all our staff. Cleaning practices are monitored regularly and all areas audited to ensure that high standards are maintained and guidelines and policies are current and being adhered to.
Alcohol sanitiser is available throughout the hospital and all staff and visitors are encouraged to use this on entry and exit to all departments.
You may need to be nursed with isolation precautions because of a known or newly acquired infection. This will involve staff, and on occasion visitors, being required to take part in additional precautions when entering your room. Nursing staff will discuss this with you and your visitors and can answer any questions you may have.
