We all have a duty to make sure that no one gets sick while they are in the hospital.All staff working in the hospital are trained in ways to stop the spread of germs. The most important way to stop the spread of germs is by keeping our hands clean. Soap and water or alcohol rub may be used to clean hands. You will be able to find sinks and alcohol rub all over.
You may see staff using extra items like masks, gloves and gowns. These items help to protect the staff and patients from harmful germs. You will also see signs that tell staff and visitors to wear these items.
If you have any questions please ask a member of your care team.
Staff work hard to keep their hands clean don’t be shy about asking us!
We may be busy and forget, but we welcome you to remind us. It’s OK to ask.
If you need to learn more please ask.
We all play a role in stopping the spread of germs and keeping our patients safe.
