Global Handwashing Day


Today is Global Handwashing Day!

In general, it is very important to have impeccable hand hygiene, but even more so during this period!

  • So when should you wash your hands?
    • After going to the toilet
    • Before and after eating
    • If your hands are dirty
    • After blowing your nose, or after sneezing or coughing
    • When entering and leaving the hospital room
  • Our carers ensure safe care by disinfecting their hands:
    • Before and after contact with the patient
    • Before a clean/invasive procedure
    • After exposure to biological fluids
    • After contact with the patient's environment
