Infection Prevention and Control

GPs and patients can be exposed to a range of pathogenic micro-organisms if appropriate infection prevention practices are not in place. These organisms can be transmitted through contact with contaminated objects such as instruments, equipment and environmental surfaces. Good hand hygiene practices and surface disinfection are critical in reducing the risk of contamination between GPs and patients.

What can you do to reduce the risk of infection in your GP practice?

Here’s 3 simple steps you can take to reduce the spread of germs

Effective Surface Cleaning & Disinfection

Effective surface cleaning, particularly of high touch areas (i.e. doorhandles, benchtops) combined with good hand hygiene will assist in protecting your staff and patients as we move into the winter months and a higher incidence of colds and flus.
