					    STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE WITH MRSA SCREENING POLICY

As a Trust we take our responsibilities for the prevention and control of
infection very seriously; The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation
Trust has for many years had a policy of screening all patients admitted to the
Trust for MRSA. We are therefore fully compliant with the Department of
Health’s recommendation that all elective and emergency admissions to the
Trust are screened for MRSA.

The Chief executive and Trust Board are assured that all patients requiring an
inpatient stay (elective and emergency admissions) are screened for MRSA
and decolonised according to Trust policy should they require treatment.

Our MRSA screening policy is available on our website should you require
any further information.




Lindsey Webb

Control
