Ambulance station cleanliness criticised

Posted in: Medical Negligence 

A recent inspection of Cwmbwrla Ambulance Station reported that it required a deep clean at the very least. The condition of the station was criticised by members of the health watchdog Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Community Health Council, branding the station as “poor” and in need of a “deep clean”.

The inspectors’ findings were raised in a report to the organisation’s executive committee, who then held a meeting at Cimla Hospital.  The key areas of discussion were the station’s state of repair, infection control and general cleanliness. A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said that improvements had been made since the meeting.

“Infection control and cleanliness of equipment”

It was highlighted in the report that the building had been “condemned not fit for purpose” following a review of the service, but continued to be used. Patient safety was another issue, as the building had already gone through a deep clean earlier that year, but was still failing to meet standards.  The report read: “Infection control and cleanliness of equipment together with personal hygiene facilities presented major concerns.

Following the report, the station has made some major improvements. They are currently working with the Welsh Government with regards to the long-term plan for the whole of Wales, and are currently replacing the station’s roof.  A service spokesman said: “In the meantime we will continue to maintain our buildings to ensure a safe working environment.
