Single hospital rooms fail to cut infection rate


Jane, when have the idiots in charge ever listened to clinical opinion or evidence? They just forge ahead with populist policies regardless. And Latterlife, the pros and cons have been much debated on here before. There are areas of course where single rooms are a benefit (provided there is enough staff to deal with them); your area is one, infectious diseases is another for example. However at the end of the day whilst we all try to take privacy and dignity and patients comfort into account, it can NEVER be the primary reason for allocating rooms. Clinical reasons and practical reasons must ALWAYS be paramount. Bays have many proven CLINICAL advantages, and maybe you should keep your own mind open to the fact that yours is a specialised area where things that work in your area are not suitable for the majority of areas.
