Healthcare associated infections
The BMA has published a review of the guidance currently available, which is at http://www.bma.org.uk/ap.nsf/Content/HealthcareAssocInfect. Somewhere in the press this was picked up, as it apparently suggests that ties are a reservoir of infection and ought not to be worn (I can find a recommendation that health professionals pay attention to dress code). It includes a review of the present position, recommendations and strategies.
