Single hospital rooms fail to cut infection rate


What is the point of taking time and money to do research if no notice is taken of the results. Most of us are aware that whilst there are some benefits to an increase in the number of single rooms, there are more disadvantages to some patients and staff than advantages. Why is privacy considered more important than safety? Care is not improved with single rooms. I have seen an increase in depression and isolation with long stay patients.
