MRSA Threats Due to Overcrowding

It has been reported that in the hospitals run by NHS trusts, more and more people are at a risk of contracting MRSA due to overcrowding//. According to the Daily Telegraph, the bed occupancy rates in these hospitals are much above the Government’s recommended level.

Norman Lamb, the health spokesman of the Liberal Democrats said that if the hospitals are crowded, it becomes an uphill task to keep patients clean and isolate them. This also increases the rate of nosocomial infections.

Countering this argument, spokesman from Department of Health said MRSA infections are under control. He also added that one million patients are being treated every 36 hours in the NHS hospitals and there are only 7000 MRSA blood stream infections last year.

The NHS said that they are executing all possible measures to control the risk of infection and are also working towards optimum use of beds in these hospitals.
