Effective Infection Control
Within the NHS lack of side rooms is a contributing factor to infection transmission. Many expensive and inappropriate methods such as bed blocking, barrier nursing or delaying discharge from wards are currently used to tackle this. The majority of patients however only require a physical barrier between
bed-spaces rather than a side room.
