Response from Russells Hall Hospital

Thank you for giving us feedback about your experience of our Maternity Unit. We take infection control very seriously and so are very disappointed to read your comments.

All rooms within our Maternity Unit are thoroughly cleaned each and every time they are vacated in preparation for the next admission. In addition, the rooms are cleaned every day while they are occupied, taking into account the privacy and dignity of the woman.

It is possible that the substance you saw on the walls was actually alcohol hand gel which, when too much is used, can congeal into a thicker, sticky substance.

We have passed your comments onto the matron and infection control team.
