Three hospitals placed in special measures following infection control concerns


Three private mental health hospitals have been placed in special measures after the Care Quality Commission found concerns over infection control.

John Munroe Hospital and Edith Shaw Hospital, both in Staffordshire and run by the John Munroe Group, were inspected after the CQC received several whistleblowing complaints over poor covid-19 infection control and covid deaths. 

A third hospital, Priory Hospital Arnold, based in Nottinghamshire, was criticised over hygiene and infection control failures after the regulator found dried blood, faeces, food and sputum on seclusion room walls.

In reports published this week, the CQC revealed it had placed all three hospitals in special measures and imposed urgent enforcement action against the providers.
