About: Rochdale Infirmary Rochdale Infirmary Rochdale OL12 0NB
After visiting outpatients department I was appalled at their level of hygiene.
In the waiting area there is a large poster advocating hygiene .
When I was called in to see the doctor he was using his keyboard and looking through my notes,
I was asked to remove my dressings ( I had a felon infection in thumb). The end of my thumb has. A open wound .
The doctor proceeded to squeeze my thumb and rub the top of it .
He then started again using the computer and then again examined my thumb.
At no point did this doctor wash his hands!
How many germs are on a keyboard? In fact I don't even recall seeing a sink in the room.
Surely in this day and age this is bad practice !
