What is infection control?

The purpose of infection control is to reduce the prevalence and prevent the transmission of infectious microorganisms. Infection control is critical to providing a high quality of health care for patients and a safe working environment for your staff. Infection control requires:

  • An understanding of the principles of transmission of infection
  • Comprehensive infection control training for each clinical staff member
  • Remaining up-to-date regarding relevant infectious diseases, new guidelines, products and procedures, and particularly newly evolving infection risks, such as influenza and multiple-resistant organisms, and how to take precautions against them.
