National children’s hospital survey

National children’s hospital survey

The experiences of almost 19,000 children and young people who stayed in hospital overnight or were seen as a day patient reveal that the majority of children and young people said they were happy with the care received, thought staff did everything possible to control their pain and they understood the information given to them by staff. However, children with physical or learning disabilities, or mental health needs reported poorer experiences of care than those without.

Why disinfect when you can Tristel?

COVER STORY

Why disinfect when you can Tristel?
Since it was first discovered that microbes cause infection, there has been a continued search for methods to destroy them. Some of the earliest weapons developed, phenolics for example, have been withdrawn for safety reasons. The remaining solutions that we rely on today – such as quaternary ammonium compounds, hypochlorites and chlorine – all have their drawbacks but continue to be used due to the limited choices available. Tristel’s chlorine dioxide chemistry represents something better.
