Our consultant Gynaecologist Mr Devaraj has #SAFESURGICALHANDS
Today our Infection prevention and surgical teams unite for SAVE LIVES, CLEAN YOUR HANDS, 5 May 2016 – work together for hand hygiene.
Hand hygiene as part of an infection prevention and control programme in all settings that support surgery, prevents patient infection and reduces an avoidable burden on health systems.
Let's help raise awareness of the importance of this small action that can lead to big changes in world health.
Each year the SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands campaign aims to progress the goal of maintaining a global profile on the importance of hand hygiene in health care and to ‘bring people together’ in support of hand hygiene improvement globally.
Improving hand hygiene practices in all surgical services through the continuum of care, from surgical wards to operating theatres, to outpatient surgical services, is the primary focus of this year’s 5 May campaign.
