Hand Washing Helps Prevent Disease in the Hospital

This video is aimed at hospital based infections.  They are commonly called, HAI(Hospital Associated Infections.

Now, some folks do not want to ask health care providers or visitors to wash their hands. But mental  discomfort now  can mean physical discomfort later.

Sometimes people are picking up infections, from pneumonia to antibiotic-resistant staph (MRSA), while under treatment for other health problems, or even while just in the hospital having a baby.  That’s a situation that could, and should, be completely avoidable.

Kimberly-Clark Health Care is on the forefront of protecting patients from Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) and has put together a site dedicated to that prevention called HAI Watch: Not on My Watch.  The site has information for both healthcare professionals and healthcare consumers.
