 NHS Nurses also Mop Floors and Clean Toilets

Improper hospital hygiene has forced some nurses to clean toilets and mop hospital floors, a survey of 1000 NHS nurses has revealed.

More than 50% are of the opinion that cleaning services for their wards is not enough. Some of the nurses have had to clean the bed after an infectious patient was discharged.

Tracey Cooper, president of the Infection Prevention Society, said: "Nurses are the guardians of the standards of their wards. Cleaning has always been an integral part of what nurses do. The risk comes when there is a lack of clarity about process and who is responsible because then you get things that nobody cleans."
