Hospital cleanliness

Cleanliness is important within our hospital. If you find a bathroom or toilet is not clean please tell a member of staff as soon as possible so they can make arrangements for them to be cleaned.

Wards are cleaned thoroughly on a daily basis.  Please help us to keep the ward as clean as possible by keeping your locker top, bed table and bed clutter free so that cleaning can take place regularly.

All our staff should observe ‘universal precautions’ and these include hand washing and using cleansing gel. If you see a member of staff caring for you and not using gel or washing hands, please feel free to ask them to do so.

Visitors should also use gel before entering the ward and as they leave. We do ask visitors to please not sit on the patients’ beds as this helps stop the spread of infection.
