Infection control nurse scoops award for keeping rates down; BREAKING HEALTH NEWS.

DELYTH DAVIES has won the Cepheid infection control nurse award 2010 for Wales.

Mrs Davies has played an instrumental role in keeping Clostridium difficile rates low in the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University health Board area.

She said: "Our infection prevention control team is very passionate about this area and I couldn't have achieved these results without their support and outstanding implementation of infection control protocols.

"I feel really honoured to win the infection control nurse of the year award for Wales. Patient safety and care is at the heart of my commitment to continually evaluate all that I and my team do to help ensure that everyone has access to the best possible care."

Nicola Williams, the health board's associate nurse director, who nominated Mrs Davies for the award, added: "She always gives 120% to infection prevention and control and she believes passionately in what she does and has engendered tremendous respect from board level to ward level.

"I believe the health board's success in relation to infection prevention and control can directly be attributed to Delyth and her strong team."
