There is no tough job than taking care of patients in a hospital facility as a small negligence can prove critical for the patient. With similar beliefs, MSP has announced in its statement of yesterday that hospital workers must follow strict discipline and hygiene procedures to avoid facing any disciplinary action over them.
MSP has clearly ordered the hospital workers to properly wash their hands while serving any patient in the premises else he can face disciplinary action.
Strict announcements came when during spot-checks over Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, officials noticed that staff at the hospital was not properly following the hygienic conditions. Not only this, the staff wasn't seen washing their hands prior attending a new patient but they also failed to follow other hygiene procedures as well like not wearing jewelry, tying their hair and taking off watches while attending the patients.
The inspectors were shocked to see the list of many more failures from the staff at the hospital even in the wards that already have been hit by bug outbreaks four times in the first six months of this year.
In her report from the Healthcare Environment Inspectorate, Highlands and Islands MSP Ms. Mary Scanlon said "Putting patients' lives at risk by failing to comply with infection control standards should be a disciplinary offence. I will be looking for assurances the hospital will comply with all necessary standards".
