"Concerned about infection risk"

I'm concerned about the lack of infection control in this ward.
My son was in the ward suffering from a chest infection and was in a single room.
There were signs on other single rooms to note the child was in isolation.
Nurses went from room to room and patient to patient to do checks without any hand washing or gloves worn.
Doors were often kept open in these rooms and at times children from these rooms were playing in the hallway.
