Bacteria ‘under control’
THE ORGANISM THAT infected at least three wards at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) last year has been brought under control.
Word of this has come from QEH chief executive officer Dr Dexter James who was speaking to the Midweek Nation yesterday.
It was in April last year that the Klebsiella pnuemoniae bacteria were discovered at the QEH.
Two months later, it had affected patients on at least three wards, including the neonatal intensive care unit.
