One in four Hospitals fail hygiene standards.

There is a country that provides free health care to all its citizens. To achieve this, the service is paid for with tax payers money. In fact the service is actually funded well above the rate of inflation. Now considering that kind of investment, you would expect the service to be excellent, wouldn't you?

Well the country in question is not so lucky. Against all the odds, one in four of these highly funded Hospitals are failing to meet hygiene standards. How could this happen? Well it looks like the country's government spent too much money on management and achieving targets, and not enough on nurses, beds and equipment. That's bad news for any country. The real bad news is that this story is about our country, and it is not fiction.
