Toolkit to help fight bacterial infections


Yes we need to deal with CPE's but this toolkit is unworkable. The implications of this guideance have not been thought through - its more screening (rectal), more isolation, more work for nurses and more anxiety for patients- with of course no funding to pay for it. And lets see - yes one nurse from public health on the working party. Yet another complicated document which will not work but which the DH/PHE will argue would have worked if only we had followed it. This has been followed up with a letter to CEOs making clear that it has to happen - so good luck.
