It is common sense that with vulnerable people in residence, plus potential sources of infection being introduced on a daily, if not hourly, basis, any hospital has to have a first class system of infection control from top to bottom.

This applies not only to the sterilisation of instruments and equipment in a surgical setting, but to more mundane matters such as the cleanliness of toilets, washbasins and floors, as well as the disposal of both non-hazardous and hazardous waste. The ancillary services of the hospital are just as important: Kitchens, food preparation and service, routine dressing and medication applications – the list is almost endless.

In each case, all staff involved should be properly trained in infection control and reduction and the chain of command should ensure that procedures are closely followed on a day-to-day basis. If that is done and it can be shown that it was done, then it is less likely that hospital infection claims will arise. It is important to keep in mind the fact that all medical situations carry a potential risk of infection and if an infection occurs, it does not automatically mean there has been negligence on the part of those responsible for delivering healthcare services.

On the other hand, if evidence shows that hygiene procedures were inadequate, or were not properly followed by staff, then there may well be potential for hospital infection claims to be made.
