Why Is Infection Control Important?

What Is Infection Control?

An infection is the result of a foreign body such as a bacteria fungus or virus entering a host and causing harm or damage. In the case of humans, this often how illness and disease begin, and therefore is something that needs to be controlled.

Infection control, are the methods that are taken to prevent spread an multiplication of infection. In establishments such as care homes and hospitals, as well as those involved in serving the public. Bodies such as Public Health England and the Care Quality Commission are responsible for ensuring that high standards are met and maintained; for the protection of those that are in care and those that are caring.

Methods Of infection Control

There are a range of methods of infection control include:

-          Anti bacterial soaps – use of anti bacterial soaps is one way to control the spread an multiplication of infection. Anti bacterial soaps are designed to stave off the spread of infection; by keeping one of the areas that attracts the most germs clean (the hands) then those in charge of caring for someone have a greater chance of not spreading or catching infections.

-          Stringent Hand Washing Routines – by ensuring that there is a clear cut method of hand washing in place, everyone will have a method of best practice to use as a guideline for how to limit the spread of infection.

-          Hand Gel – hand gel is a useful weapon in the fight for infection control. Strategically placing gel stations around the establishment and encouraging a culture of using them when passing from one area to another will help to control infection and stem the spread of germs.

-          Uniforms – as well as helping staff identify one another and patients know who is in charged; uniforms for care and nursing are designed with the notion of infection control in mind. Medical uniforms have little in the way of locations for bacteria and other infections to multiply meaning that they protect the wearer and those in their care

-          Protective clothing – another way to protect yourself and those in your care from infection in carehomes, is to use protective over clothing. This can take a range of forms, gloves; aprons and face masks being primary examples. These are often disposable single use items which don’t allow for the growth of bacteria

Other Ideas For Infection Control

One of the most effective ways to ensure that there is infection control, is to have a strict and effective cleaning regime in place. Use the highest quality effective cleaning chemicals and cleaning products and ensure that you clean from clean to dirty so as to avoid spreading infection. Areas for food preparation and dining; beds where residents are in a long period of time; and bathrooms are some of the most important areas to focus on.
