Infection control should always be a priority. But with flu season approaching, it’s more important than ever for your caregivers to have the tools they need to keep themselves and their clients healthy.

Are your caregivers intheknow ?

Infection Control is Everyone’s Business

Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) don’t just happen in hospitals. An HAI can develop any time a person gets sick while under the care of a healthcare team and that includes home care and long-term care facilities.

Proper hand washing is the most effective way to prevent the spread of infections. Yet, study after study shows that more than half of all healthcare workers do not wash their hands as often as they should.

The Facts

  • Nearly 99,000 people die in the US each year from HAIs. That’s more deaths than breast and prostate cancer combined.
  • On average, you come into contact with 300 surfaces every 30 minutes, exposing you to 840,000 germs.
  • That’s why 80 % of all infectious diseases are spread by hands.

What can we do?

Are your caregivers prepared to keep the clients they serve germ-free and healthy throughout the flu season and beyond?
