Everyone plays a role in infection prevention—patients, families, and healthcare personnel—in and out of healthcare facilities, and keeping your hands clean is the number one way to stop germs from spreading.
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or use hand sanitizer often to prevent the spread of infection.
It’s pretty easy!
Make sure that everyone around you, including your healthcare providers and your visitors, do too. Did you see them clean their hands? If not, ask them to do it again!
Please speak up for your care, and ask plenty of questions when you go into any healthcare facility. Don’t be shy.
After all, we’re talking about your health.
