NURSING ASSISTANT, THE: INFECTION CONTROL

Because of frail health and a declining immune system, many elderly residents are more susceptible to infections íV for example, urinary tract infections or respiratory infections such as colds or pneumonia. Infection control practices as simple as hand washing can help prevent the spread of illnesses such as these. A disease or infection acquired by a resident may result in discomfort, pain or even death. If you are exposed to germs at the facility, you could also become ill and in some cases, you could spread that illness to your family and friends. This revised and updated program reviews two basic but very important infection control practices: hand washing and glove usage. Frontline caregivers will learn how these practices can reduce the spread of disease and infection. After completing this course, the learner should be able to: ~ Describe the three links in the chain of infection ~ List three ways in which disease can be spread ~ Describe how to perform routine hand washing ~ Give three examples of when to wash hands ~ Give three examples of when to use gloves

UNIVERSAL PRECAUTIONS - INFECTION CONTROL PROCEDURES

Universal Precautions - Infection Control Procedures - Infections can be deadly they can destroy your health and certainly are hazards to avoid. With the proper precautions and information, you can reduce your chances of contracting and spreading infections. Certainly, the most deadly forms or infections are Hepatitis B and the AIDS viruses. Universal precautions to reduce infections is a well established program and there are other isolation precautions as identified in the Centers of Disease Control Guidelines for isolation precautions, but this program addresses the generally accepted practices related to all types of infections. Your responsibility is to know and understand your healthcare institution's policies and procedures and follow these rules according to these guidelines. Topics included in this safety video are: minimizing contact with blood and body fluids, needle and sharp disposal practices, identified routes for transmission of HIV, HIV can also be transmitted from infected mothers to their infants, wash your hands before and after contact with patients, gloves should be worn, gowns or plastic aprons, masks and protective goggles, mouthpieces, resuscitation bags, other ventilation devices, sharp objects, used needles, needle disposal box, blood spills, cleanliness, and sanitizing chemicals.

SANITATION AND DISENFECTION IN HEALTH CARE ENVIRONMENTS

Sanitation And Disinfection In Health Care Environments - Sanitation and good housekeeping can both be defined as the practice of rendering the hospital free from agents injurious to health. Microbiology, the study of microscopic living, plantlike organisms, including bacterial, viruses, yeasts and molds is the biological science on which sanitation is based. There are more than 10 communicable diseases known to man. Each one of these diseases or infections is caused by a specific organism. Organisms enter the body through the respiratory tract, digestive tract or through breaks in the skin and multiply, causing tissue injury and body reaction. As the organisms multiply many are shed by the infected person and may be spread to others, thus beginning the cycle again. Topics included in this safety video are: bacteria, viruses, control of infection, pathogenic organisms, infection control, disinfectants, cleaning, wet-cleaning methods, germicides, damp-wiping cloths, treated dust cloths, clean wet mops, launder the used wet mops and cleaning cloths every day, separate cleaning equipment, plastic film or waxed paper bags for the disposal of infected materials, handling of linen, processing of soiled linen, odor control, waste, non-combustible/combustible, chemicals, and insect and rodent control.
