3 ways to prevent infection in ambulatory care settings

The Joint Commission outlined steps from its Speak Up to Prevent Infection Campaign to improve infection prevention in the ambulatory setting.

The key details to know:

1. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer to wash your hands, or use soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.

2. Patients can be encouraged to remind nurses and other caregiving staff to wash hands when entering a patient room.

3. If a patient or a provider is sick, they should stay home to prevent others from getting sick.
