"Dirty Dacre"

About: Lister Hospital

I am currently in Dacre ward and am disgusted with the level of uncleanliness. During the last 6 days the cleaner has swept room twice and wiped round sink once with a wet cloth haven't seen a cleaning product yet. My beds hand control was covered in blood I cleaned it myself as it was so unhygienic. The toilets have not been cleaned for days and there is blood on the floor of most of them and sick and dihorrea around most of the toilet bowls. Several people have been admitted with vomiting but I have not witnessed any form of deep cleaning. The midwives however have been excellent, can't fault their care.
