Superbugs And Personal Antimicrobial Products

EDM number 2459 in 2007-08, proposed by Mike Hancock on 10/11/2008.
Categorised under the topic of Diseases.

That this House is concerned that, despite recent falls, infection rates of MRSA, clostridium difficile, norovirus and other superbugs remain high and there is considerable public anxiety about this issue; notes that as everyone can carry and spread superbugs, patients and visitors, as well as hospital staff, have a part to play in helping to tackle infection; believes that patients should be provided with the means and information to protect themselves and others when they go into hospital; and calls on the Government to provide personal antimicrobial products that are proven to kill superbugs to every NHS in-patient as this will help reduce infection rates, empower patients and instil good hygiene practices at a small fraction of the financial cost of treating those who do contract superbugs.

This motion has been signed by a total of 18 MPs.
