The spread of infection can be avoided by breaking any one link in the chain of infection. Protect yourself and your patients with standard precautions, safe injection practice, effective hand washing and personal protective equipment.
According to the CDC, 1 in 25 hospital patients have at least one healthcare – associated infection on any given day.
These standard precautions can help healthcare providers focus on patient protection – and breaking the chain of infection.
Remember, gloves don’t eliminate the need for handwashing, and handwashing doesn’t eliminate the need for gloves. You can cut down on infections by using gloves, gowns, masks & goggles.
