    Is this just Warwick, or does this affect other hospitals?

    It seems a regular occurence at Warwick Hospital which is worrying, makes you wonder if the management is incompetent.

    Other hospitals do get bugs, but Warwick does have a bad name. I've overheard people talk about it on the bus.

    I was at Rugby St Cross yesterday. Whilst I might have many grumbles, it seemed more than adequately cleaned and the staff were noticeable for using the facilities for regular hand cleansing.

    I have come away with a sore throat and grumbling chest though! - Mrs R also seems to have caught a throat problem. I guess that hospitals are breeding grounds for unpleasant germs.

    Ever since I worked on the ward I have developed a habit of handwashing almost to an obsession. Even If use the alcohol gel, I don't feel as though my hands are clear. If I come home from shopping the first thing I do is wash hands. We can pick up germs on buses, and sometimes I think drinking coffee in cafe's can be a bit bug infested. I know the cups are clean , but how clean. Now you know I am hopelessly paranoid about germs.

    This will make you cringe, One day on the wards I noticed worms in a patient faeces, reported it to sister who was at lunch at the time, I had to put a sample in a small sealed pot and send it up to the path lab.
    We isolated the patient and scrubbed that bed , incinerated the sheets.

    Apparently, when I was a child I had an obsession with washing my hands. Just an odd fact about me.

    That gave me the shivers Margaret. - Though my daughter had worms. - Apparently caught from her cat that her mother allowed her to take to bed!
