There is a busy daily ward routine cleaning. You may find you are
woken earlier than you are used to at home. The hospital day involves
patients receiving medication or needing their blood pressure or
temperature taken, often in the early morning. When it comes to settling
down at night it is likely to be earlier than at home, as many patients feel
particularly tired at the end of the day and want to settle early.
Infection control and cleanliness
A dedicated team of Infection Control Nurses and doctors at the
Rosemary Mission Hospitals give advice on minimising the risks of
infection occurring in individual patients, and on preventing the spread
of infection between them.
A really simple – but effective – method we follow in Rosemary
Mission Hospitals to prevent infection is good hand hygiene . Effective
hand hygiene can prevent the transfer of infection from one patient to
another; alcohol rub gel can be found at bedsides as well as at the
entrance to the wards and staff should have their own dispenser.
We encourage all healthcare workers to clean their hands before
carrying out any care.
