What could be improved
My elderly father has been an in patient for last six weeks with a broken leg, and in that time has been moved to 4 different wards. There has only been 1 week when visiting has not been restricted due to the norovirus outbreak. The advice given very strongly to all visitors has been to wash hands with soap and water and to use the hand gel on entering and leaving the wards and not to visit any other wards afterwards.. This, as far as I have seen has been observed by all visitors. What I am concerned about is the lack of compliance with these rules by members of staff! My father has been moved by wheel chair to several departments including X-ray and plaster rooms and not once has the porter used the hand gel. Nor have I noticed the cleaners/catering staff using it either. No wonder the virus is almost impossible to control if these basic rules are being openly flaunted.
The hospital needs to get its act together concerning these issues.
