Southern Infection, Prevention and Control team celebrated

Southern DHB is celebrating International Infection Prevention (IPC) week this week and the work of our fabulous IPC team.

The team play a crucial role in keeping patients, staff and the community safe and have worked tirelessly over the past year supporting our hospitals and other settings.

Their message this year to everyone is to take some easy steps to protect yourselves against COVID-19:

  • Remember to practice good hand hygiene
  • Wear a mask
  • Use QR codes wherever you go
  • Stay home if you’re sick and get tested if you have COVID symptoms
  • And get a COVID-19 vaccination.
