Inspectorate: Many hospitals fall short of health requirements

The Inspectorate of health care has investigated 25 hospitals.  Of these, 22 did not meet standards.  For instance, cleaning staff should be more effective and disinfect areas more stringently.  Furthermore, patients should be better evaluated with regard to contagious diseases on arrival at the hospital.  In ten hospitals, insufficient attention is given to whether patients are infected with resistant bacteria.  In three-quarters of hospitals, isolation room techniques are not up to date, and staff should be better trained in isolation procedures.
