We finally heard from the CPS-and surprise surprise CPS's Anthony K.Johns at Portsmouth has thrown out our case!!We have a meeting with him on Tuesday Feb 27th at 10.00am-so he can explain himself!I have already told them that I believe him to be a coward-and I will tell him that to his face!
As we actually got our Dad's death certificate changed saying there is a lack of evidence is stupid-because we have the evidence in front of us!As for it being in the public interest-of course it is!!!

We have just carried out tests on our 'Lightclean' coating. With a one off application to some stainless steel door handles it kept them free of permanently free of bacteria.
The life of the active agent being 5 years. i.e. 5 years of clean handles. This works on all toilet handles, switches, pens, instruments, tea trolleys etc.......

Hi All
In november 2005 i had a stomach operation to repair a large hernia. My bowel was perforated during the operation but repaired.After the sutures were removed one week later the wound started leaking lots of red liquid. After a few trips to a&e they finally on xmas eve of 2005 took me seriously.
On xmas day they cut the wound back open with no anaethsthetic and on new years eve i developed blood poisoning.
The wound was left open for 7 months to heal itself and was cleaned and packed daily. I never want to go through anything similar ever again. the physical and mental scars still remain.
MRSA was not diagnosed until january 2006 and i feel so let down by the medical profession.If anyone else has suffered similar please reply thank you

My son who is 25 has had Cystic Fibrosis since birth and has been in and out of hospital most of his life. He has been in and out of hospital more over the last year and half with chest infections. He was admitted again this week into hospital with another chest infection which he had to be put back on oxygen. It was not until he passed some sputum and was sent to the lab, and it has come back with the MRSA superbug. Can anyone give me any information on the seriousness of this to a CF patient.

Hiya all
i was just hoping for some advice and reassurance.

I had my 4th child by caesarean section on the 3rd October 2006, 3 weeks post natal i thought my wound was completely healed until one part started to go red, it was painful, smelt and started to ooze pus with a tint of blood. i went to the doctors who prescribed anti biotics, i finished the course and thought the infection had cleared, until two weeks later it opened via a small hole and oozed again. I tried another antibiotic but it didn't work. The hole closes over and the abscess or whatever it is fills up with pus then reopens releases the pus the closes again over and over again, It is red around the 'exit'hole and smells and it's painful. The doctor told me it would heal on it's own, the last time i saw him he said i would have to be referred back to gynae (which is has a 5/6 week waiting list for appointments)as it hasn't healed.

It concerns me that i still have an infection (nearly 5 months later) and no... read more

C. difficile

Interesting news item yesterday that another organism - C.difficile - has actually affected more people than has MRSA! It is even more difficult to eradicate - as it's a spore-bearing organism the spores can resist ordinary cleaning, sterilising with heat etc. They also resist alcohol hand-rub although they can be dealt with by thorough hand-washing (and how often do you see that happen in hospital?)

The over-use and misuse of antibiotics over many years is implicated in the spread of C. difficile as well as in that of MRSA. Which is what I was told by our senior tutor when I was a student nurse back in 1957 - that there would one day be a 'super-bug which could prove intractable'...so the likelihood was known 40 years ago.

C. difficile also mainly affects the over-65s. Well, I am 70. On 19th October I'm due to go into our local NHS Trust hospital at Southend to have a second revision of left hip replacement. For the past few weeks I've been very careful what I eat. We'... read more
