What could be improved
I was recently admitted to QMC A&E Department and had to stay in for two nights. I was placed on ward B3 and in view of all the Infection Control drives which have been occurring over the past year or so I was quite shocked to find the state of the toilets / bathrooms on the ward. There were only 3 to server quite a large ward (one which was out of order anyway) and of the two remaining toilets, they were both filthy! It has played on my mind for the past few weeks and I just feel the need to tell someone. Everything in them was dirty. The toilet & seat, sink, taps, bins (which were also overflowing several times with allsorts of towels / nappies / sanitryware etc!), the floor, mirrors, walls - it was awful! Much of it was fresh 'daily dirt' and also much of it was ingrained dirt which 'could' have easily been cleaned.
Please, please, please clean up at least the bathrooms on wards, it is so unpleasant when you are ill and away from home, without having to worry about catching further infections.
