Equip people to protect themselves against harmful pathogens
In the human-to-human zone, HAIs spread by direct transfer of germs
Coughing, sneezing, touching. In healthcare settings, unchecked pathogens can easily cause infection through hand, face and bodily contact. Masks, gowns, gloves and hand hygiene products and practices provide protection—but only if everyone uses them properly. That’s the challenge.
Build good habits for hand hygiene and PPE use
Everyone in your facility—staff, as well as family members and visitors—must consistently and properly cleanse their hands and wear appropriate PPE to prevent pathogen transmission. But getting everyone to comply is complex. Contributing factors include:
Low awareness of what PPE to use and how
Confusion about correct hand hygiene technique
Lack of ready access to products throughout the facility
