Infection Prevention is Everybody’s Business

International Infection Prevention Week-October 14-20, 2018

Infection Prevention is Everyone’s Responsibility

Each of us—patients, families, and healthcare personnel—has an important role to play in keeping patients safe from infection. First and foremost, know the basics of infection prevention. Do your part—and hand hygiene is key! Whether you’re in a healthcare facility or in the community, there are things healthcare professionals, patients, and family members can do to stay safe from infections.

International Infection Prevention Week (#IIPW), October 14-20, celebrates the importance of infection prevention and patient safety. Raise your voice and spread the word that everyone plays a role in infection prevention.

Do your part-and hand hygiene is key!
