Number of breaches of the policy on mixed sex accommodation in relation to sleeping accommodation for the month.
From 1 December 2010, the collection of monthly mixed sex accommodation (MSA) breaches was introduced. NHS organisations submit data on the number of occurrences of unjustified mixing in relation to sleeping accommodation. The collection will enable the analysis and publication of consistently defined data to allow patients and members of the public to understand the extent to which MSA is occurring at individual organisations.
