Reporting Scotland disclosure team misses urinary catheter overflowing in filthy British hospital

dsc00456

I’ve looked through the full post-pigeon hygiene report for the 1 677 bed, 1 100 patient rooms, 11 floor, New Southern General, which is producing ludicrous exploitative headlines throughout our NoMedia and there are, in it, many pages of full compliance by capable staff, interspersed with a handful of mostly individual cases of blood or body fluids found on toilet seat hinges or trolleys. Would it be possible, in any way, for at least one Mr I P Squint not to have been in the loo first thing so that an inspector could spot it (you know what I mean) before the cleaners can get around again? Should there be 1 677 personal cleaners, following each patient around, at all times, to wipe up instantly?

Imagine they had found even just one example like this from Liverpool’s own flagship hospital? On the ‘comments’ website for the flagship Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital we see:

‘Every day at both visiting times, meal plates and medicine shot glasses were always left on my father’s table, including disposable temperature probes, which should have been discarded in the appropriate manner, his urinary catheter was almost overflowing and spills from this, when emptied were only wiped up when I requested this to be wiped as this was a trip hazard to my father.’

At least one of our health correspondents would have been wetting herself on the way to the studio.

    And, of course the pigeon droppings featured prominently having ‘contributed to the death of a patient recently’.

    While there is, undoubtedly an anti-SG/SNP/Scotland push behind this litany of carping stories, there is also an anti-public service line to this, which is probably to make more people more open to the ‘attractions’ of private health insurance’ and other ways for privatisation to encroach on NHS Scotland

      Yes, Alasdair. “Follow the money…” never leads us far astray.
