Hospital wards across the country are being filled to potentially dangerous levels, increasing the risk of infections like MRSA, it has been warned.

Hospital superbugs: Full hospitals wards 'increasing MRSA risk'
Article in the Telegraph


"Official figures reveal that more than 95 per cent of beds at some hospitals across Britain were filled last year.

The national average, and recommended safe level, is 85 per cent.

Among the highest rates for Primary Care Trusts were at George Eliot Hospital Trust, in Warwickshire, where the bed occupancy rates was 97.8 per cent, and Bath and North East Somerset PCT, where it was 97.1 in the 12 months to April this year.

Experts warn that extra space is needed to deal with outbreaks of infection, such as the Norovirus, and that high levels of occupancy can lead to a rise in superbugs like MRSA."
