New Hand Hygiene Stations / Infection Control


Kate Reid, Assistant Nurse Unit 
Manager, Medical Ward

This year, GV Health has installed new hand hygiene sanitising stations throughout the organisation.

The new foam dispensers are available broadly to ensure we are all doing a better job of hand hygiene and infection control.

The new stop signs, located above some of the dispensers, are there to remind you to stop and use the sanitising foam to prevent the spread of infection.

Infection prevention is the single most effective strategy known to reduce health care associated infections and it’s everybody’s responsibility.
