More infection control madness in the UK

At this point I've lost track of stupid new rules in UK hospitals enacted in the name of infection control. But here's the latest: reducing visiting hours for new fathers. A local newspaper editorial asks the critical question: "What we fail to see is that if a father who is carrying germs is on the ward what difference does the length of time they spend there make?" 

This is just another example of what happens when the goal of infection control policy is PR instead of infection control.
