"Infection control"

About: St Andrew's War Memorial Hospital

(as a service user),

Several years ago, I got an MRSA infection through poor infection control in another hospital interstate.

Recently, I am in St Andrew’s in Brisbane and I see things have not improved much in Australian hospitals, in my opinion.

Virtually no hand hygiene because of what I believe to be:

- Very few hand rub distributors, making practising hygiene difficult

- Very poor hand hygiene awareness and practice.

Leaving soon and I feel I’ll be lucky to escape without some multi resistant bacteria infection.
