Clean Hands, Fewer Infections

Assoc Prof Dr Sasheela Ponnampalavanar, Consultant Infectious Disease Physician, University Malaya Medical Centre

Clean

It is estimated that at any one time, more than 1.4 million people worldwide are suffering from infections acquired in hospitals. This is a serious threat to public health, especially considering multi- drug or antibiotic-resistant organisms are on the rise. In today’s show, we look at why our hand hygiene is the single most effective method in reducing the transmission of infections in hospitals.
