Hospitals in the News Shopper area have been forced to take extra measures to stop people stealing and drinking an alcoholic hand wash.So, this is a problem with alcoholics?
Both Lewisham Hospital and Queen Mary's Hospital, in Sidcup, have moved the handwash which is used to fight superbugs such as MRSA, to more secure locations in the building's public areas.
An inquest at Southwark Coroner's Court, on August 5, heard how two homeless eastern Europeans were found dead in a Streatham squat after drinking the gel in February.Yup, you read that right. Two alcoholic tramps poison themselves by stealing and consuming a substance clearly not intended for human consumption, yet in the eyes of the charity health ‘experts’, it’s the manufacturer’s responsibility…
In response to the deaths Thamesreach is now pushing for the manufacturers of the gel to take more responsibility.
A charity spokesman said: "The onus is now on the makers of these gels to clearly label how poisonous these products are, while removing, or at least concealing, the reference to alcohol content."
The world truly has gone mad!
