Inpatient for busy period and witnessed staff not cleaning their hands after touching patients with obvious skin diseases. Cross contamination. Patient in side room was sick and staff were sorting out who's go and clean the male up after his diarrhoea and vomit. No aprons hand washing or gloves observed any time. Patients with skin issues when having blood pressure cuffs on weren't cleaned in between patients or wiped...reault when discharged was unwell for quite sometime with virus. Staff moved patients to have deep clean no further explanation to patients. Mental health patients disturbed put on mixed wards and sent home with only dressing gown (issued hospital) pj bottoms no underwear.
