Ward Decoration Guidance

It’s important that we recognise and celebrate significant festivals of all faiths/beliefs within our hospitals, but we must ensure that we are able to do that while maintaining a clean and safe environment for our patients. With the increasing number of Covid-19 patients in hospitals and rising transmission rates in our local communities it is important that we ensure that our wards and departments are clean, tidy and uncluttered and that we can decontaminate any clinical area quickly and effectively. This new guidance is timely and should answer any questions you have – if not get in touch with us here: dchst.infectioncontrol@nhs.net  or 01246 515870.
