To prevent the spread of hospital infections
Following admission to Irish hospitals, approximately 1 in 20 patients acquire an infection. Infections acquired/picked up in hospitals can be harder to treat. You can help protect yourself by asking staff and visitors to clean their hands.
To make a difference in your own health
Hand hygiene is one of the most important ways to prevent the spread of infections, including the common cold, flu and even hard-to-treat infections such as MRSA.
