OMESTIC as­sis­tants at Step­ping Hill Hos­pi­tal have been given a clean bill of health for their work in help­ing to pre­vent in­fec­tions.

The team won a spe­cial award for its part in a fall in in­fec­tions such as C Dif­fi­cile of about 30 per cent in the last year.

Nesta Feather­stone, se­nior in­fec­tion pre­ven­tion nurse at Stock­port NHS Foun­da­tion Trust, which runs Step­ping Hill Hos­pi­tal, said: “The do­mes­tic team work tire­lessly to keep the hos­pi­tal clean across 55 wards, cor­ri­dors, out­pa­tient de­part­ments, and be­yond. This award is a big thank you for the hard work they do to keep our pa­tients safe from in­fec­tion ev­ery day.”

The hos­pi­tal em­ploys about 180 do­mes­tic staff, who are on site 24 hours a day.
