New royal adelaide hospital plagued with issues from start to finish

Updated

There’s a problem with public hospital beds in Adelaide’s Royal Adelaide Hospital and more than five thousand cases of drug-resistant superbugs have been found within just 14 months, making it Australia’s most expensive hospital.

It could cost billions to fix.

More than five thousand cases of drug-resistant superbugs have been found within just 14 months, making it Australia’s most expensive hospital and Australia’s second most costly hospital.

But Adelaide’s Royal Adelaide Hospital continues to h바카라ave some of the highest rates of drug-resistant superbugs in the nation.

This year Adelaide’s Department of Health and Disability Services has found 18,049 new cases of drug-resistant superbugs in the first seven months of 2016.

Of these, 12,500 were in the ER and 3,70우리카지노0 were in intensive care units in Adelaide’s biggest medical centres.

The problem is acute.

In the past five years, there have been more than a thousand infections in patients in the ER during an eight-day outbreak, says Simon Jones, chief executive of the International Hospital Infection Control Society.

That’s what happened when it opened in 2013 — and it’s still going on.

In January 2015, a patient suffering from advanced renal disease died.

On Christmas Eve that year, a patient at Alice Springs Memorial Hospital became ill and died in the OR. Four days later a doctor was put in charge of an ER emergency in which it emerged a patient had died the previous day.

Doctors weren’t told of the patient’s condition or of the urgent nature of the emergency.

“A lot of this is because we didn’t want to wait for the staff to make a call, it’s what I call a ‘bad habit’,” Mr Jones said.

“So if we got it that early that it would be like, oh we’re going to make the next patient here, we’re not going to say anything because we’re just going to keep on doing what we’ve been doing.”

He said the hospital has now moved on to “all-out’ drug-detection — a massive initiative.

The next task is to create an open standard for drugs detection, which has led to two-year-old protocols being reviewed and re-written.

Some drugs are identified, but it’s difficult to say how many because these are isolated. Dr Simon Jones, ICIS chief executive
