An NHS chief this week in­sisted lessons will be learned af­ter vomit was left ly­ing on the floor ofwishaw hospi­tal‘s cafe for al­most a day.

Univer­sity Hospi­tal Wishaw’s direc­tor of hospi­tal ser­vices Mar­ion Mark said the in­ci­dent was “clearly not the stan­dard of clean­li­ness we aim to pro­vide” and the in­ci­dent would be raised with clean­ing staff.

Pa­tient Deb­bie Ral­ton was left dis­gusted when she re­alised her sick from the pre­vi­ous night, when she had fallen ill in the ground floor cafe on Thurs­day at around 8.20pm, still hadn’t been cleaned at 3.30pm the fol­low­ing day.

Deb­bie told the Wishaw Press: “It’s ab­so­lutely dis­gust­ing and very em­bar­rass­ing. It’s a hospi­tal, it’s meant to be a ster­ile en­vi­ron­ment.

“No won­der the place gets a bad name.”
