WEXFORD GENERAL HOSPITAL RESPONDS TO HIGHLY CRITICAL REPORT
The Clinical Director at Wexford General Hospital says there are no excuses for their failures in hand hygiene.
Dr. Colm Quigley was speaking after a report by the Health Information and Quality Authority was published yesterday which was highly critical of hygiene practices at the hospital.
HIQA had suggested disciplinary action but management have decided to focuse on cajoling and supporting staff to carry out training.
Dr. Colm Quigley says all staff will be re-trained by the end of the year.
