Erne Hospital cleanliness concerns must be fully addressed

13 December, 2007

Sinn Féin MP MLA for Fermanagh South Tyrone Michelle Gildernew has expressed her concerns over the comments made by the Health Watchdog on the cleanliness of the Erne Hospital in Fermanagh.

Michelle Gildernew stated:

"I am deeply concerned with the findings from the Western Health and Social Services Council on the level of hygiene within the Erne Hospital. It is unacceptable in this day and age to have such low levels of hygiene within our hospitals. I will be hoping to meet with the management to discuss these issues as soon as possible.

"Hospital Inquired Infections are a major issue for all our hospitals and it is essential that management put in place, maintain and keep under constant review its procedures." ENDS
