Infection Prevention

When visiting a hospital, proper hand hygiene is crucial to prevent the spread of infections. Please follow these guidelines to protect yourself and others:

  1. Wash Your Hands: Always wash your hands before seeing a patient and after you leave. Use soap and water if available. In the absence of soap and water, use antibacterial foam from dispensers in each hospital room and hallways. Always wash hands:
    • Before and after visiting a patient
    • After coughing and sneezing
    • When hands are visibly dirty
    • After toilet use
  2. Avoid Touching: Never touch wounds, bandages, IV lines, catheters, or any tools used to treat the patient. Minimize contact with these items to prevent contamination.
  3. Stay Home if Sick: If you are feeling unwell or have symptoms of illness, it’s best to stay home. This helps protect both patients and healthcare workers.

Remember, clean hands count in maintaining a safe environment for everyone in the hospital. Thank for being mindful of infection prevention!
