Fighting Infection Starts with Clean Hands and Surfaces
Infection Prevention Is Every Team Member's Responsibility
Keeping patients happy and healthy starts the moment they walk through your door. It continues while they sit in the waiting room, and all the way through your time together in the exam room. Making sure every step of their path is free of preventable infection is a crucial element of a healthy practice.
Pathogens aren’t confined to the clinical areas of your practice. In fact, they can spread throughout the facility. Studies show that pathogens can spread to up to 41% of surfaces in a physicians office, including waiting and patient care areas, within 4 hours.
