Curtains, basins and the spread of MRSA

Hospitals are spending considerable sums earmarked by the Government for tackling healthcare associated infection (HCAI) Extra wash hand basins have been on most ‘must-have’ lists. That makes sense. But, at HaCIRIC, we suspect that some of these improvements are being undermined by the use of curtains on wards to offer privacy to patients.
