Andrew Donovan, Infection Prevention Coordinator and RN here at St. Joe’s chatted with Amanda from WLBZ TV earlier this week about infection prevention and what we are doing here at St. Joe’s to ensure our infection prevention standards stay high.

Here are three things that Andrew talked about:

Hand-washing is an important part of our everyday lives here at St. Joe’s and we welcome patients asking if we washed our hands.

Pre-operative management of patients is an important part of infection prevention. We educate our patients on what they can do to help.

We are very mindful of the use of antibiotic and administer only when necessary.

Check back here for the news clip with Andrew on WLBZ TV 2.
