Island’s Neonatal Unit NOT affected by drip associated infections

| June 6, 2014 | 0 Comments

Public Health England has issued an alert following 15 infections in neonates in the past four days. The infection caused by a bacterium called Bacillus Cereus, seems to have been transmitted via contaminated drip feeds administered to the neonates. Drips manufactured by only one manufacturer have been implicated and the contamination seems to have occurred on a single day.

The Isle of Man obtains its supplies of such drip feeds from a different supplier and the Department would like to reassure members of the public that there have been no such cases locally.
