MRSA linked to outsourced Brushing in NHS hospitals


In the United Kingdom, the National Health Service (NHS) in England has – partly in an effort to reduce costs – made extensive use of outsourced cleaning. However, health services in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales rejected this option.

The analysis excludes Trusts for which the data was not of high enough quality, or that employed a mix of private and in-house cleaners.

To allow comparison between differently sized hospital Trusts with varying levels of activity, the team use MRSA incidence per 100,000 hospital bed-days in their analysis.
