Don't bring germs in - don't take germs home.
Research shows that clean hands dramatically decrease infections.
To reduce the risk and spread of infections:
- Visitors and staff need to wash their hands with soap and water or use hand cleaning gel before and after patient contact. Hand cleaning gel pumps are available in public areas of the hospital, at ward entrances and throughout ward areas.
- Patients need to wash their hands after visiting the toilet and before all meals.
- Anyone with cold, flu, diarrhoea or vomiting symptoms should not visit until they are well for the sake of patients’ safety.
