Worcestershire Royal Hospital and Redditch’s Alexandra Hospital in Worcestershire, U.K., have passed infection control inspections, according to an article on the Worcester News website.
Inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) visited both hospitals to assess the standards of cleanliness and how staff were working to prevent the spread of infections such as norovirus.
“We really appreciate the help we have received from the public this winter in preventing the spread of infections, particularly norovirus. Our new ‘pull together’ guidelines, including increased hand hygiene and stricter visiting times, have really helped us protect people from these winter bugs, said the trust’s chief executive, Penny Venables.
The CQC is the regulator of health and social care in England and carries out unannounced inspections of all care homes, acute hospitals and domiciliary care services in England at least once a year.
