Horizon Star - September 2019


Hey, you!

Yes, you.

Did you know?

220,000 Canadians will acquire an infection during their hospital admission. 8,000 to 12,000 of those individuals will die from their hospital-acquired infection (HAI). At Horizon, we care about the health of our patients, their families and our co-workers. It’s OK to ask us if we’ve cleaned our hands. It’s important we all work together to keep our patients, families and co-workers safe by performing hand hygiene. Compliance with hand hygiene is associated with up to a 50 per cent reduction in HAI. Treatment is costlier than prevention. With proper and frequent hand hygiene, we can save lives. Hand hygiene is the single most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your patients.
