Lecture Overview

Brief

The need to maintain personal safety is ever-present where healthcare acquired infections are concerned. Not only must we keep ourselves safe but nurses have a duty to ensure the risk of infection to patients and clients is minimised as well. Which infections are nurses most susceptible to? Are you using the right PPE? Could you be doing more to avoid HAIs?
