Infection Control
We take infection control very seriously and constantly work to control the risk of infection to patients, visitors and staff.

Hand hygiene is an important way of reducing the risk of infection. There are sinks and alcohol hand gel close to the end of every patient bed to encourage good hand hygiene. We advise that visitors to wash their hands or use the gel when they enter and leave a bedside.

We also ask that visitors do not sit on beds.

Mobile telephones
Mobile telephones may only be used in public areas, such as the main reception and café. They must not be used in the clinical areas, including the wards, as they can interfere with sensitive medical equipment. Please turn off your mobile phone before entering any clinical area.

The use of mobile phones to take photographs or record images is not allowed to ensure patient confidentiality. 

Smoking
Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a smokefree Trust. Smoking is not allowed in any of our hospital buildings or grounds. This includes The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre and Basildon University Hospital, and the car parks.
