An infection caused by bacteria, fungi or viruses is called an infection. A hospitalized patient who is already ill, if he or she is exposed to these germs, will find it difficult to recover quickly.
If you are going to the hospital to see a patient, you will need to take a few steps to protect them from germs.
The best way to protect yourself from germs is to clean your hands. If you are sick, stay home and get your vaccine on time.
Hand Cleaners and Alcohol Hand Cleaners:
Before and after entering the patient's room.
After using the bathroom.
After touching the patient.
Before and after using gloves.
Remind friends and staff to wash their hands before entering the patient's room. To wash hands:
Wet hands and wrists, then apply soap.
Hold hands for at least 2 seconds to foam well.
Take off the rings or clean the underside.
If your fingernails are dirty, use a brush to clean them.
Wash your hands under the tap.
Dry your hands with a clean paper towel.
Do not touch the faucet or sink after washing your hands.
Use a paper towel to close the faucet or open the door.
You can also use an alcoholic hand cleaner (sanitizer) if your hands do not appear to be dirty.
These dispensers are installed in different places in the patient's room or hospital.
۔ Take out a sanitizer equal to the amount of coins on the palm of one hand.
Both hands meet back and forth and between the fingers well.
Keep meeting until the hands are dry.
Stay home if you are sick:
۔ If any of the patients or staff members are sick or have a fever, they should stay at home.
If you think you have chicken pox, the flu or any other infection, stay home.
Remember that even a minor cold can be a big problem for a hospitalized patient. If you can't decide whether or not you should go to the hospital, call and tell them all about your situation before you go to the hospital.
To meet patients in separate wards:
People who meet patients who have been isolated should also stop at the nursing station first to get the necessary instructions.
Special arrangements are made to protect such patients from the spread of germs in the hospital. Patients and visitors need to be protected from germs, as well as other hospital patients need to be protected from germs.
When the patient is isolated, those who visit him:
Gloves, gowns, masks or anything else is needed to cover the body.
The patient should avoid touching.
The patient is not allowed in the room.
Other things to prevent infection:
Patients in the hospital who are very old, very young or very ill are at high risk of being harmed by the flu or the common cold. Flu vaccines should be given to protect themselves and others from the flu. It takes years (get information from your doctor for this).
When you go to the hospital to see a patient, keep your hands away from your face. If you have a cough or sneeze, put a handkerchief over your mouth instead of sneezing or coughing in the air.
