I had cancer and went to Macclesfield hospital to have a tumour removed. I have no complaints at all about the treatment I received. The people who cared for me did a good job. The hospital seemed very clean. I had marvelous care.
However, I contracted MRSA during my stay. As I said, the hospital was very clean. In my opinion, the problem is the visitors, they are just not clean at all. The hospital is too lax with visitors, allowing them to arrive at anytime and sit anywhere. In my view the root of the cleanliness problem is the visitors.
Years ago there was a matron on wards who was very strict and kept visitors in line. Now people do anything they want; they stay all day, with no visiting hours. I think this is not on at all.
Some of the people who come to visit are filthy, and they are allowed to bring anything into that hospital, without using cleaning gel. Things should be stricter, with visitors made to wash their hands. Everything should be very very clean, and the only thing preventing this is the visitors.
Many thanks to all the staff on ward 1, particularly Mr Khan, my remarkable consultant.
