  4. First time patient has contracted 'superbug' at City Hospital

    BBC Local Live

    Nottingham University Hospital Trust has issued a statement after a "superbug" outbreak closed one of the wards at the City Hospital.

    Two patients are carrying the CRE bug but neither patient has had symptoms or signs of infections.

    Both cases are probably linked, the trust said, with one or both probably getting infected in the hospital - the first time this has happened.

    Quote Message: The bug is very resistant to many antibiotics and can cause serious infections. We are taking all practicable measures to prevent further cases of this bug. We quickly isolated the two affected patients. We have closed the ward to new admissions, restricted visiting and patient movements from the ward, and enhanced ward cleaning. The importance of washing hands with soap and water has been reinforced to all staff and visitors." from Dr Stephen Fowlie NUH Medical Director
