Hospital waste and bugs

Royal Berkshire Hospital waste

Royal Berkshire Hospital waste

I  think our local hospital, The Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, is excellent. That said, at a time when we are all concerned about bugs being transmitted through wards I think they could manage the message a little better.

This photo shows waste bags piled up in a main thoroughfare. The yellow bags on the floor, and the overflowing yellow bin, are potentially infectious waste.

I have no idea whether this is a safe or good practice. My point is that it makes it look as though the hospital doesn’t care. My experience is they do care. Therefore they damage their image by this practice.
