Hand Hygiene and Infection Prevention

The single most important thing you can do to help prevent infections is to clean your hands. Also, make sure everyone that physically interacts with the patient, including doctors and nurses, clean their hands, too. Everyone should clean their hands:

  • When entering the room.
  • After touching objects or surfaces in the hospital room.
  • Before and after eating.
  • After using the restroom.

It is also important that healthcare providers clean their hands with either soap and water or an alcohol-based hand cleaner, both before and after they touch the patient. Healthcare providers know to practice hand hygiene, but please feel free to remind us!  Do not be afraid to speak up.

As a visitor, please be respectful of other patients and avoid coming into the hospital if you are sick or have an infection. If you cough or sneeze, please cover your nose and mouth.

Be an Advocate for Your Loved One

With your loved one in the hospital you might feel the need to do everything you can to help them through this difficult time. A way to do this is to become a patient advocate for your loved one. You can speak up for them while in the hospital and help them in making the best decisions about their care and treatment. Ways to help your loved one and be a better patient advocate include:

  • Research the condition your loved one is being treated for.
  • Actively monitor your loved one’s condition, ask how they are doing, what their pain level is.
  • Your loved one may be prescribed new medication while in the hospital and be seen by several different doctors. This is important information that needs tracking. There is a notes page provided in the back of the patient guide for that purpose.
  • Understand the patient’s rights and responsibilities.
  • Find out your loved ones advance directives statuses and discuss them with him or her.
  • If your loved one is too ill or reluctant to ask questions or address concerns, please don’t be afraid to speak up on their behalf.
