A nurse at Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust has exposed the poor hygiene standards. The nurse ‘sally’ works at both Queens Medical Centre and the City Hospital.
“At Nottingham’s Queen Medical Centre the situation is far worse than its sister hospital, Nottingham City Hospital, just three miles away.. Often I am instructed by doctors and senior nursing staff to tell patients there is no bed because of “overcrowding” or “a lot of beds have been taken by A&E admissions caused by accidents”. Sometimes it’s true but most of the time it’s just a lie to explain away staff shortages, and outbreaks of Superbug infections..
I have seen patients die as a result of Superbug infections..The QMC was supposed to be cleaned up in the government’s “Deep Clean” operation but it has not been undertaken and will not be now the word is from upstairs..
At the QMC aound 30 cleaners were sacked over a year ago at a time when we didn’t even have enough”
She also talks about one particular patient in her late sixties who was admitted for a simple surgical procedure. She contracted MRSA and died three weeks later. The nurse, Sally then alleges
“that’s not what the Consultant..told her family…they said she had developed pneumonia and renal failure..and done all they could which was also a lie. In the first instance this patient should have been isolated from the other patients but she was simply left on the same ward with 5 other patients..”
I am unsure when this account was actually written, but it appears to have been written some time in 2008. To read the full story follow the link below.
