THE Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWMH) in Suva has experienced about 10 outbreaks of multi-drug resistant organisms since 2006, a report compiled by a team of experts from World Health Organization (WHO) has revealed.

The Ministry of Health and Medical Services had requested WHO conduct an investigation last month at CWMH to identify the source of Acinetobacter baumannii outbreak which occurred within the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at CWMH between December last year and March this year.

But yesterday, permanent secretary for the ministry, Phillip Davies, said the ministry had given its assurance that NICU ward was still safe for every patient.
