THE number of MRSA cases in the East Midlands has fallen with only five cases of infection being recorded in the whole of the region last month.

The drop in cases reflects the hard work of both staff and public in the region.

NHS staff have been focussing on tackling infection control in a number of ways including carrying out deep cleans and participating in awareness campaigns. While the public are also helping by being more vigilant about cleaning their hands when entering and leaving NHS premises.

One of the campaigns that all the NHS organisations in the East Midlands took part in was ‘Hand in Hand, fighting infection together’. This campaign was launched in December 2007 and was aimed at helping reduce cases of healthcare associated infections.

The campaign included a wide range of awareness boosting initiatives from talking cardboard nurses which remind you to wash your hands and materials to show you the most effective way of doing this, to a targeted television and radio advertising campaign and staff training films.

The commitment of staff to the campaign’s aims was shown by the results of polls2 taken in April 2010 which revealed that 40 per cent more patients were confident that their hospital environment was clean than in October 2008.
