International Infection Prevention Week

October 18, 2015

Hey friends,

The international infection prevention week falls on the third full week of October every year and serves as a reminder that we are the first line of defense. As nurses we are continually educating our patients on health management. For this years international infection prevention week we have partnered up with Allheart scrubs to remind you to help prevent the spread of germs. 

Here are some simple tips to help prevent the spread of germs:

  • Wash your hands for at least 30 seconds
  • Do not cough/sneeze into your hands
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes, or mouth with your hands
  • Get a flu shot
  • Practice safe cooking techniques
  • Do not place purses or other bags on kitchen surfaces
  • Do not share personal items
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched places
Another really neat way nurses are able to help prevent infection is by wearing antimicrobial scrubs. Brands like Cherokee, Code Happy, Allheart, Figs, and Heart Soul all have scrubs that do not sacrifice comfort for functionality. My personal favorites are Figs and Cherokee Infinity. Be sure to shop all antimicrobial scrubs here and help protect the community.
