Preventing Infections – Hand Hygiene

Hands are the main way that germs are spread. Germs are often harmless but they can also make you sick. Hands pick up germs from touching other people, things such as doorknobs and light switches, and by coughing or sneezing into your hands.

Frequent hand washing and cleaning your hands with hand sanitizer found throughout the Hospital are the most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs and infectious illnesses.

Anyone who is feeling unwell should not visit in person. Instead they can call or use our virtual visiting option.
