Breaks in routine, competence , location and information were given as the reasons behind a raft of deadly infections amongst premature babies at a hospital in Sweden last year.

Seven premature babies were infected with multi-resistant bacteria at a unit in Västerås last August.

Three children died after becoming infected by the bacteria.
