Single hospital rooms fail to cut infection rate

Comment

We have patients isolated on intensive care and it significantly cuts infection rates down because there is usually only 1 nurse looking after the patient and the nurse isn't allowed out the room. It's different in icu though I know but it is demoralising for the nurse looking after that patient. No social interaction. People reluctant to come in when help is needed. Not allowed any stimulus of any sort.
