What I liked
I visited a patient on the medical assessment unit. The nursing care was good and so was the anxilliary care.
The cleaning standards were extremely poor.
The centre of the wards looked alright but under and beside the beds was a disgrace, as was the area around the lockers. There was plenty of dust and sticky surfaces evident
This must be a paradise for bugs that cause infection. No wonder the person I visited became more ill by being in hospital.
What could be improved
Please ensure that cleaning personnel understand what is meant by cleaning and are taught how to perform their duties efficiently and effectively.
