Two cleaners at a Birmingham hospital who were caught on camera breaking rules to prevent dangerous infections from spreading through the wards have been sacked.
Steve Bennett and Habib Urreahman, who worked at Heartlands Hospital, were disgraced in an undercover operation by the BBC Panorama programme in July.
A spokeswoman for Heartlands Hospital said: "We can confirm that two of the cleaners highlighted in the Panorama programme have since been dismissed by Initial Hospital Services.
"Initial has assured us that any other staff who appeared in the programme have been disciplined appropriately and thoroughly retrained so they meet the high standards we expect here."
The two cleaners, who were employed through contract firm Initial Hospital Services, were sacked at the end of last week.
Eight more hospital domestics, all women, who were shown breaking basic hygiene rules have been given disciplinary warnings.
The report showed Bennett, of Yardley, and Urreahman, of Small Heath, purposely flouting their cleaning duties.
