Infection Prevention


Infection prevention: a video for patients, families and visitors


Please ask us ... “Did you wash your hands?”

Hand washing is the single most important procedure in a hospital for preventing and controlling the spread of infection to patients. Germs can be spread in a number of ways, but the most common carriers are hands. Once an infection starts, it can quickly spread to you, your family and other patients. Please read the important Patient Information Hand Hygiene and ask us:“Did you wash your hands?” 

For more information, please see our infection control information for visitors.
