The Weymouth Street Hospital has a rigorous system of infection prevention and control policies, surveillance, training, auditing and cleaning regimes, which includes all staff from consultants to housekeepers. As a result, we can ensure we have the lowest post-operative infection rates including MRSA, which gives our patients the peace of mind they deserve.
We know our patients are concerned by what they read about healthcare associated infections, like MRSA, which is one of the reasons why we strive to provide the very highest standards of care.
Since we opened in 2008 we have had zero cases of MRSA bloodstream infections compared to the national NHS Acute Trusts rate of 1.8 cases per 100,000 bed days. Source Health Protection Agency
As a team we are proud to reassure our patients of our exemplary hygiene standards.
