My nana is on the stroke unit at Macclesfield General. During her time there, the lady next to her had contracted MRSA, the staff nurse was informative and helpful as all the staff taking care of my nana are.
We were told there would be a "deep clean". Only thing is myself and other family members were there, and witnessed a cleaner wipe around everybody's bed fittings and lights with the same cloth and a duster mop.
I myself picked up a large amount of dust and dirt from beside my nana's bed before this incident occured, three hours later - no sign of a "deep clean".
My nana is still there as are the other ladies that up to this point have not contracted mrsa, as by now they should have been swabbed as staff nurse suggested.
A very concerned tax payer and relative!
