Infection control in a health care setting is a fundamental responsibility shared by all staff. This video resource will ensure that infection control is front of mind for every worker.
It starts by outlining the four principles of infection control, followed by a detailed examination of standard precautions that must be undertaken at all times, including a step-by-step demonstration of correct hand washing technique. Transmission-based precautions are explained, grouped into three broad groups: contact, droplet, and airborne.
Finally, organisational support is described, including the importance of the infection control committee and regular health screenings for all staff.
