Help Us Reduce the Spread of Infections

PROVINCIAL POSTER

Hand hygiene is the #1 way to prevent the spread of infections. Hand sanitizers are conveniently located throughout the hospital… before entrances, on patient care units, and near elevators. Please use them!

  • Your doctors and nurses should practice hand hygiene every time they enter your room.
  • Clean your hands before eating, after using the restroom, and after touching surfaces in the hospital.
