PATIENTS REQUIRING ISOLATION

PRECAUTIONS

You may be required to be nursed with

isolation precautions. This may be

because of a known or newly acquired

specific type of infection, or because

of your own immune status. This will

involve staff and on occasions visitors

being required to take part in additional

precautions when entering your room.

Nursing staff will discuss this with you

and your visitors, and can answer any

questions you may have.

FIRE TESTS AND DRILLS

At London Bridge Hospital, we take the

safety of our patients, visitors and staff very

seriously. Our staff take regular training,

we have the latest evacuation equipment,

our buildings are constructed to the very

highest standards and we are subject to

frequent and regular external inspection.

Our alarms are tested every Tuesday,

starting at 10am, and drills are conducted

annually. Your nursing staff will inform

you when a drill is taking place; you will

not be expected to participate.

YOUR FEEDBACK

If you have a comment, suggestion or

complaint about any aspect of our service,

please approach a member of staff in the

relevant department and they will attempt

to resolve things as quickly as possible.

You will be given a Patient Feedback

Questionnaire to complete and we

encourage your participation.
