Questions or concerns

Infection prevention is everyone’s responsibility; hand washing is one of the single most important factors in the prevention of infection transmission.


Staff decontaminate their hands before and after caring for patients by hand washing or using an alcohol based cleanser.  If you are worried that this has not been done please feel free to ask or remind us.
