Handwashing/Hand Hygiene

Waterless Hand Hygiene Product
Infection control is very important. To prevent the spread of infection, please clean your hands before and after each visit.

Waterless hand cleaner is available in dispensers on the walls throughout the hospital. This product is more effective at killing most germs than soap and water and works best when the hands are rubbed together vigorously until the cleaner is absorbed into the skin.

If you are ill, please speak to the nurse prior to visiting. You should refrain from visiting if you are unwell.
