We have now been told not to accept anything that isn't visibly clean..quite right too.
Yes, we've been at fault for accepting kit that has been cleaned. We've played the 'nice cop, bad cop' routine with our 'colleagues'.
When we start to enforce this 'Trust Policy' we're going to be labelled as nit-pickers, job-worths etc..
It's going to be our fault when their equipment doesn't get repaired as quickly as they would like. The Equipment Library is going to grind to a halt - no equipment for loan, because it's all out on the wards dirty and awaiting collection.

Watch this space..

cheers
