The three areas will be added to the Infection Prevention & Epidemiology Honor Roll, along with:  8A, CVC 5, MSSU Blue, 6B, 7E, CVC 5-ICU, 9E, 7W, PCTU, Rad Prep/Recovery, 5A, 8C, 5B, 12E, PFANS, Neuro ICU, 6C, 7A, 7C, CVICU, 4B, 5C and SSS.

Don’t forget, excellent hand hygiene is one of the best ways to protect yourself and patients from infections. Please encourage each other to wash hands and use “Clean-Remind-Thank”:

  • Clean in and clean out of patient care areas
  • Remind someone if they forget
  • Say “thanks” if someone reminds you
