    The first new hospital cleaning standards for 14 years have been outlined by regulators, including confirmation of new food hygiene-style star ratings. Wards and theatres will be given ratings from one to five stars – based on audits which score the cleanliness of areas against safe standards – and these ratings will be made visible to patients. The plans for the new star ratings, which are expected to be easier for patients to understand than the current cleanliness percentage scores, were first revealed by HSJ in 2019. The ratings are also designed to encourage a more collabor

    Hand hygiene has had a high prominence in the context of COVID-19 during the past year. World Hand Hygiene Day, celebrated each year on the 5 May, and led by the World Health Organization (WHO), presents an annual opportunity to keep this important patient safety intervention firmly on the international and national agenda beyond a global pandemic. This year we are prompted not to forget the critical times for hand hygiene, and particularly the valuable role that healthcare workers and all those who support them play, in achieving effective hand hygiene action at the point of care.

    An infection "probably" linked to Glasgow's children's hospital was the "primary cause of death" of a young cancer patient, the BBC has learned. Infections from contaminated water at the hospital were also found to have been an "important contributory factor" in another child's death. A review looked into the cases of 84 children who developed infections while undergoing treatment at the hospital. It found that a third of infections "probably" originated in the hospital and the rest were "possibly" acquired there. The authors of the "case note review", which should be publi

    NHS Supply Chain has suspended supplies of some ultrasound gels over concerns they might be connected with outbreaks of bacterial infections in multiple hospitals. Thirty hospitals have reported 46 cases of Burkholderia contaminans between October last year and January 2021. No patients have died but some developed sepsis symptoms. NHS Supply Chain has suspended supplies of three ultrasound gels as a “precautionary measure” and guidance has been updated on the safe use of gel to reduce the risk of transmission of infection. Existing stocks have not been recalled and NHS Supply Chain

    The NHS spends £8.3 billion a year treating chronic wounds on an estimated 3.8 million people, according to the recently updated study evaluating the “Burden of Wounds” to the NHS. Costs have increased by 48% in the five years since the study was first published and the overwhelming majority of this burgeoning demand, around 80% of the caseload, impacts on community healthcare. This webinar will explore the “Burden of Wounds” with study author Julian Guest and consider how digital wound management solutions can relieve pressure and improve outcomes. We’ll see case studies from community
