Are you more likely to catch it staying overnight in hospital than if you stay at home?

Not only are they for ill people they are for ill strangers. Speaking generally, All of us carry around our own pet zoo of bacteria and so on and we mostly have the same sort of zoo as people we are close with.....the further away the people we mix with come from, the less of our zoos will overlap and the more likely we are to get an illness from a visiting bug. Its why...

Depends. It depends for example on what your domestic circumstances are- do you share a house/room, how much close care you need in hospital or at home. Home should be safe in Covid terms if you live alone and stay in and have been keeping it clean and washing your hands. But if you have been offered a bed in hospital they must think you need looking after for some health reason or other
Impossible to say without knowing the severity of your case.
Hope not I just spent 4 days in hospital !
yes
hospitals are for ill people remember
and your home isnt ( unless you are Fred West, when they are ill and dead)

people getting nasty infections from Hospital is common place altho getting corona I agree is rare

Its why the kiddies bring home noo bugs when they start playgroup and the whole family get them, also why the first term away at college can be carnage. Once all the bugs have been swapped, the zoos all settle down again. Of course in hospitals there is the added complication of all the challenges to the patients’ immune systems from the ops, illnesses and so on that they are there for. When there were still big mental health long stay hospitals, it used to be said that each one had its own brand of d and v and new staff would catch it then become immune. My non research experience makes me belive this was true.
Keep away from hospitals.

In February, I went in with pneumonia. Came out with bedsores and bronchitis (still got the bronchitis!)
