My partner John has just been to Maidstone Hospital to visit his mother. It was Maidstone Hospital, you may remember, where the chief executive was fired over its dreadful record on outbreaks of MRSA.
It seems Maidstone Hosptial still has a lot to learn about cleanliness, especially at weekends. John had to try eight different hand gel dispensers before he found one with any gel in it. People often maintain that it's not a good idea to be in hospital at weekends. I can now see why.
