NHS trusts in England are struggling to meet key hygiene standards, according to data submitted to the NHS watchdog.
A quarter of the trusts report they are not complying with one of the three standards relating to the hygiene code, covering areas including cleanliness.
A spokesman for Patient Concern said: “This is terrible. It is bad news for patients and shows trusts are not getting the basics right.”
Just how bad is Moore’s preferred style of health care, a/k/a “socialized medicine?”
60% NHS trusts have failed to meet standards related to reducing the risk of infection, failing to decontaminate equipment properly and not meeting the hygiene code.
Oh but wait it gets worse, England’s 394 trusts self-declare how they are doing against the core standards, which then help determine their overall NHS rating.
Which means they are so screwed up they can’t even lie to make themselves look good!
But it isn’t all bad news. Trusts did best in meeting standards covering professional codes of practice, whistle-blowing and openness.
Goodness! Their mighty good at protecting their own jobs, making sure they have a process to squeal on co-workers and “openness,” whatever that means.
But when it comes to providing an environment safe enough to approach within a 100 meters without infection by some type of green oozing crud… not so much.
Wonder when Michael Moore will produce a slockumentary on the British NHS?
