A&E displaying large warning signs for Norovirus - but during my 5 hour stay I only saw one person besides myself (a visitor) use the hand gel entering and leaving the A&E dept - that includes patients and staff!
That is appalling - surely the reception staff and triage nurses should be asking everyone to use it?
Also no evidence of cleaning in unit, although the toilets were inspected during the 5 hours I was laying on a trolley. Infection control needs to be enforced more aggressively - no wonder patients pick up bugs and viruses.
