Letters to the Editor

Local man John Cunningham sent the following letter into Newry Times about the state of taps in Daisy Hill Hospital. The accompanying pictures, John claims, were taken from the Natal Unit several days ago in Daisy Hill Hospital.

Dear Editor,

As you are aware, there are a lot of problems regarding germs in the water killing children in hospitals. I was disgusted to discover the condition of a tap in the natal unit at Daisy hill Hospital. On Saturday the 11th Feb 2012 I visited a woman who had a child on Saturday morning and she was put into a single bedroom along with her new born child.

The tap on the basin had a growth around the spout. This is a crusty texture which is hard but will scrape off with your nail. How can the hospital managers go on TV and tell us they are doing everything possible to eradicate the problem when this filth exists? This is criminal.

Please use this information as you see fit.

John Cunningham
