It’s International Infection Prevention Week!

Wash Your Hands – It’s Easy and It Saves Lives

As International Infectious Disease Week is upon us it is critically important to remember that most infections can be prevented by simply washing your hands. You can protect yourself, your family and everyone around you by using soap and water.

When?
When you have a cold, the flu or are not feeling well, wash.

Do the same when you are around someone or taking care of someone else that feels the same way.

Before you treat a wound, wash your hands and make sure you wash the wound and wash your hands again after.

You know the drill! After using the bathroom, changing a dirty diaper, touching a questionable surface, using cutting boards and the list goes on.

Let’s make the common sense approach a lot more common!

Why?
Because it stops the spread of germs and is the most effective method to stop the spread of disease.
