Mc Monagle welcomes new hospital hygiene protocols

Gerry McMonagle

The Chairman of the Letterkenny Municipal District has welcomed indications from Letterkenny General Hospital that a review of hygiene and cleaning practices have been concluded, and new protocols are being implemented.

However, he's expressing concern at a suggestion that staff who do not comply with hand hygiene regulations may be named and shamed.

Along with other Sinn Fein colleagues, Cllr Gerry Mc Monagle had previously called on management at the hospital to consider their positions if they could not address the problems identified in a recent HIQA report.

He says he's happy the issues are being addressed.............
