All rooms to be singles at new £228m hospital
Extract from Guardian article:
"The NHS trust at the centre of a Clostridium difficile infection scandal is to build a £228m hospital where every patient will have a separate room with an ensuite bathroom.
The health secretary, Alan Johnson, said yesterday that work would begin early next year on a 512-bed hospital in Pembury, Kent. It will replace one of the three hospitals run by Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS trust, where 90 patients were killed by C difficile bacteria during two outbreaks in 2005 and 2006. In a report last month, the Healthcare Commission blamed poor management for failing to instil better hygiene on the wards.
Mr Johnson said the new hospital, built by a consortium led by John Laing, would be the first in England to provide every patient with a single room, offering better isolation of people with infections. He allocated £350,000 for deep-cleaning the trust's hospitals on top of the £720,000 budget it had already received this year for eliminating infection in particular wards."A good move surely.
