Reduce the risk of infection in hospital

Hospitals are one of the cleanest places you can be, but can also be one of the most dangerous, because they hold such a large number of sick people. Nurses and doctors should be aware of the dangers and make sure that everything is clean and sterile when they deal with you, but from time to time a doctor may slip and this can lead to you getting an infection which is worse that what you were originally in the hospital for. Here are some tips on reducing the spread of infection when you are in the hospital.

  • Make sure your doctor is always wearing gloves. Whenever your doctor is doing any procedure or treatment on you, they should be wearing sterile gloves. Make sure that these gloves come out of a box and that you watch the doctor put them on before they touch you. These gloves should be disposed of immediately.
  • Needles should be sterile. As with gloves, you should watch a needle being taken out of its packaging before it is used on you, and disposed of straight away.
  • Wash your hands. Whilst your doctors should be washing their hands frequently, so should you. After you use the bathrooms, before you eat and after you have been for a walk, make sure you wash your hands thoroughly.
  • Ask your doctor to wipe off their stethoscope before using it. This goes for any medical equipment that might be used, and the doctor should use an antibacterial wipe before they bring it to you.
