Current definition of healthcare associated E.coli bacteraemia is not practical to apply. But why even attempt to subdivide? Surely the objective should be ALL E.coli bacteraemias...

Providing nursing home patients with more drinks actually created less work as residents were healthier the best interventions are the simplest

"A lot of people think that because you are old you like drinking warm tea out of a plastic cup" Absolutely. Actually, pineapple and milk shakes popular, possibly because they stimulate less sensitive taste buds? Themed seasonal drinks and a nice drinks trolley

Great job If you are going to in Liverpool this year go and listen to the incredible work. Great example of what can be done in turning around the Gram negative oil tanker, this year 3% decrease but national increase!

Fabulous work in Leeds Real public health initiatives in the community. What effect will moving the goalposts to hospital cases only have on these types of initiatives?

Aargh.. going to move the goalposts to an objective of Hospital onset Gram negative BSI only. So in the overall scheme of things E. coli the OTERAP principle. Pareto in reverse. Evidently data not good enough for non hospital cases..

National IPC priorities in England. To agree a national method to measure hand hygiene compliance?? 🤦🏻‍♂️ Will this mean tolerance of real rates? Can we ditch 'compliance'? Probably patient hand hygiene more important for E. coli as endogenous

Well that was good. Enjoyed that! Problems with taps - take them out to disinfect. Too many sinks - take them out. TMVs - take them out. Water coolers - take them out. Water samples - take them yourself! Severe disruption at Waterloo - take the bus!

This seems rather apt after spending a day discussing contaminated sinks. A reminder of unexpected sources!
