"Filthy toilet floor and doors"

In May 2012 I had to attend my pre-op assessment in Redhill. Living an hour away, I set off early to avoid a problem with heavy traffic, so I arrived early for my appointment.
I had a leisurely cuppa in the canteen, and popped to the loo on my way to the ward. Quite frankly I was disgusted by the state of the facilities. There was dried blood or faeces smeared on the back of the cubicle door, and the floor behind where the door would be when open was filthy.
Clearly nobody had trained the cleaning staff to close the door and clean behind it. Hotel staff are trained to sit on the loo and look at what the guest will see when seated... such a pity we can't expect that standard of cleanliness in a hospital.
I am due to attend for an operation next week, and now hear that there is norovirus through various wards. I am not surprised.
