The Trust has recently achieved a record 88 days without a MRSA bacteraemia.
Richard Harrison, Medical Director said; The safety of our patients in the number one priority for this Trust and over the last year there has been a sustained improvement in a key indicator of safety - the level of Hospital Acquired Infection.
We are delighted that all our hard work on infection control continues to pay off with this remarkable achievement of 88 days without a case of hospital acquired bacteraemia (blood borne infection) in the Trust and a 90% reduction in the incidence of Clostridium Difficile in the last 18 months
These improvements have been achieved by the concerted effort of all staff and we are determined to maintain the improvement so that all of our patients can feel confident that when they need our services they are 'safe in our hands'.
