Infection control and prevention is everybody’s business!

We all come into contact with germs everywhere, every day. As a healthcare professional, you understand the importance of good hygiene, especially relating to hands… but do you know why?

In the healthcare setting, the main way to transmit infectious agents are through contact (including blood borne), droplet and airborne. Infectious agents transmitted during healthcare come primarily from human sources, including patients, healthcare workers and visitors.

Patients and healthcare workers are most likely to be sources of infectious agents and are also the most common susceptible hosts. Other people visiting and working in healthcare may also be at risk of both infection and transmission.

Practicing hand hygiene before each instance of patient contact reduces the risk of cross-contamination. This includes between caring for different patients and between different care activities for the same patient and after any activity or contact that potentially results in hands becoming contaminated (such as removal of gloves).
