Intravenous news: Times of malta report “Staff at Mater Dei’s Intensive Therapy Unit won the first edition of the hospital’s Infection Control Award, organised by the hospitals’ Infection Control Committee. The committee, whose role is to appraise Infection Control Standards and provide related training, congratulated the nursing, medical and paramedic staff of the ITU for their achievements in the past year.
