Is this a bad time for a superbug to rear it's head?

Oldham and Salford!

 

As if it wasn’t bad enough already. What next of the four horsemen?

What a ridiculous article.  In there we've got:

Quote

Northern Care Alliance (NCA), the NHS group which runs hospitals and other services in Salford, Oldham, Rochdale and Bury, takes a ‘zero tolerance’ approach to MRSA and ‘thorough investigations’ have been taking place.

They've solved it!  Just introduce a 'zero tolerance' approach to covid-19

Quote

Chief nursing officer Libby McManus explained that each of the cases involved ‘complex’ patients with underlying health problems who carried MRSA before they were in hospital and were all cared for after the infection was identified.

Duh.  It is a hospital -- they didn't turn up because of the MRSA infection, thus must have had underlying health problems.

'Carried MRSA before they were in hospital' -- the article has already said it is relatively common to find people carrying it.

'all cared for' -- it is reassuring to find out that they weren't not cared for.

Anyway, MRSA is everywhere now and I'm impressed that the NHS has managed to get deaths under control compared to where they were 20 years ago.

An NHS group?

Didn't it used to be the Pennine trust?

God knows.

It is just the NHS to me, in the same way that the railways are just 'British Rail'.  All this contract/trust stuff is just a mechanism to give less money to workers and more to the multinationals, with a nice bung to all the senior managers to keep the game going.

Infections like MRSA are less common now in the NHS due to the increased focus on screening, cleanliness and appropriate antibiotic prescribing.

 

so the places are spotless at the moment? Clearly not.

They stopped using Bleach and MRSA became rampant. 

But the environment was saved.

Youd have thought theyd have ben running uber high hygien protocols and keeping visitors down.

Youd be wrong.

You dont need super antibiotics to deal with MRSA.

P45s will do it.

So do we assume low standards generally or the same "cleaning crew" being in both places with a dirty mop?

Therein lies the problem wit the NHS. In any real world organisation people who fuck up are disposed of. If they are not the organisation eventually collapses. The NHS, on the other hand, protects the mediocre, the incompetent and the downright dangerous. It's not allowed to collapse and be replaced do we have an organisation in which much of the good work done my competent people is undone by the bad ones and a seriously high proportion of the budget is wasted, both in trying to undo some of the damage but more so in trying to hide the damage and the true state of affairs.
