Prevent

Don't Spread Infection. Spread Your Infection Control Message.

One in seven hospital patients experienced at least one unintended harm that prolonged his or her hospital stay caused permanent injury, required life-sustaining treatment, or resulted in death. 99,000 deaths occur every year due to all types of medical mistakes*. Miscommunication plays a major role in many of them. Successful healthcare organizations develop and maintain effective communication strategies not only to curb the spread of infection, but also to prevent life-threatening errors. Signage, labels, and other visual communication must be placed in locations where they will be easily recognized in order to be most effective. Evaluate the strength of your current infection control message, then decide what must change and what you need to do it.
