Hi, wrapping up infection,
It's a disease-causing organism that invades
the body and causes a reaction to the disease.
Don't forget about your chain of
infection, and it's composed of an organism,
a reservoir, usually a human
body, a way to exit, how we transmit it
and also another point of entry for a susceptible host.
Now, don't forget that the most effective way to prevent
infection and break that chain is good old hand washing.
So let's talk about healthcare associated
infections and how those are preventable
through good practice technique and don't forget
that that is diligent infection prevention standards.
Standard precautions should be used for all individuals,
and transmission-based precautions such as
contact, droplet and airborne are definitely needed
to consider for some infection processes.
Thank you for your time.
