Infection prevention and control (IPC) refers to practices and protocols implemented to minimize the risk of infections spreading in healthcare settings and other environments.

  1. Hand Hygiene: Regular handwashing with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand sanitizers helps prevent the transmission of pathogens from one person to another.

  2. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Healthcare workers should use appropriate PPE, such as gloves, masks, gowns, and eye protection, to protect themselves and patients from infectious agents.

  3. Environmental Cleaning: Regular cleaning and disinfection of surfaces, equipment, and patient care areas help reduce the spread of pathogens.

  4. Respiratory Hygiene and Cough Etiquette: Covering the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and promptly disposing of tissues, can help prevent the spread of respiratory infections.

  5. Safe Injection Practices: Ensuring the use of sterile needles and syringes for each patient and following proper procedures for handling and disposal of sharps minimizes the risk of bloodborne infections.

  6. Aseptic Technique: Maintaining sterile conditions during invasive procedures and surgeries reduces the risk of introducing pathogens into wounds or sterile body sites.

  7. Isolation Precautions: Implementing isolation measures for patients with known or suspected infectious diseases helps prevent the transmission of pathogens to other patients, healthcare workers, and visitors.

  8. Education and Training: Providing healthcare workers with education and training on IPC practices and procedures promotes adherence to guidelines and ensures effective implementation of preventive measures.

  9. Surveillance and Monitoring: Monitoring and surveillance of healthcare-associated infections help identify trends, assess the effectiveness of IPC measures, and guide interventions to prevent future infections.

  10. Antimicrobial Stewardship: Promoting the prudent use of antimicrobial agents helps prevent the emergence of antimicrobial resistance and reduces the risk of healthcare-associated infections.
