What is infection control?

Within the healthcare and workplace safety industries, infection control is an vital point of focus and a required area of expertise for many specialised staff. Effective control of infection in the living or working environment, especially in hospitals and clinics prevents contamination by practicing stringent preventative measures and effectively isolating affected subjects while in turn providing them with an optimal level of treatment.

Timing is crucial and knowing how and when to administer medication against infection prevents further contamination of other subjects or expansion of the infection to other organs of a patient. Controlling the factors that lead to the spread of infection, including environmental conditions that contribute to contagion is also part of the infection control guidelines and procedures - all covered in great depth in professional infection control training programmes.
