That Dirty, Dirty MVNHS©

Coming soon to a hospital near us?

"A quarter of NHS Trusts are compounding the risk of hospital infections by failing to meet core standards on hygiene."

So says the Brits' Care Quality Commission, as part of its ongoing audit of hospitals' compliance with basic standards set forth by the MVNHS©. On the other hand, at least the hospitals have their priorities in order: sure, the doc's don't always wash their hands, but the staff rigidly enforces rules against visitors sitting on patient's beds or (heaven forfend!) bringing them flowers.

Gee, can't wait for that here.
