First, do no harm… Safe practice is a primary objective in healthcare. Safety lies at the heart of the way each procedure is performed, and is at the heart of what each student learns. One simple way to improve the safety of each patient interaction is to improve infection control practices. This alone can significantly reduce healthcare-related infections, reduce neonatal mortality and save countless millions of rands on hospital days. Infection control is part of the core curriculum of every healthcare qualification and is the responsibility of everyone in the healthcare environment. Incorrect or inadequate procedures and processes endanger both the patient and the healthcare professional. Prevent and control infection for safer healthcare practice contains all the information needed to empower the professional to understand and implement good infection control practices. The book includes content on basic microbiology, disinfection and sterilisation procedures, clinical practice and procedures, housekeeping and even infection control in the home-based care setting.
