The shocking story of hospital infections

I've written a detailed post for the TaxPayers' Alliance blog setting out the scale, nature and causes of the scandal of hospital infections. The scale and sheer awfulness of the failure, both in Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust and the rest of the health service, is staggering. The cause is political management and the ongoing failure to put British healthcare under the proper control of patients.

I was wondering what your opinions were on the treating of asymptomatic patients and on the debate between using vancomycin over metronidazole in C diff cases.

No. On the Healthcare Commission report primarily. Why?
