Birmingham City Hospital - Rada the right medicine for infection control
Birmingham City Hospital has turned to Rada, to help target improved efficiencies in infection control after detecting higher than expected rates of C. difficile in one of its former Nightingale wards. The ward was deemed a hospital ‘hot spot’ with more occurrences of the infection than other areas. The hospital’s infection control team worked with its capital projects department to put infection control at the top of the agenda for the new ward’s design, which saw 30 of Rada’s Acu non-touch digital thermostatic mixing valves installed. Rada Sense was chosen for the ward’s shower areas.
