New rule: No sitting on the bed
I've blogged several times previously about some of the unusual infection control regulations in the UK. These include the banning of Christmas decorations, aquariums, and fresh flowers. Now the Brits have a new rule: no visitors or healthcare workers can sit on the patient's bed. I think it might be easier to place each patient in a hermetically sealed container.
