The Infection Control Department works to prevent and control
the spread of disease throughout the hospital. At times, patients
may be isolated and precautions put in place to protect patients,
staff and visitors. Visitors should check with the nursing
station to see if they need to follow any special precautions.
Anyone coming into the hospital is asked to use the hand sanitizing
dispensers located throughout the facilities. Also if personal
equipment such as walkers and canes are brought into hospital,
these need to be cleansed with soap and water before and after
entering the hospital.
Should you need further information about a specific disease
or infection, ask for a fact sheet at the unit nursing station
or call Infection Control, extension 1259.
