While peaking during times like flu season, infection prevention is a year-round initiative to help protect patients and staff from infection. A robust infection prevention program includes multiple tactics, ranging from standard precautions like hand hygiene and the use of personal protective equipment (PPS) to environment disinfection and safe injection practices.
