Six Important Things to Know About Preventing Hospital Infections

out the hospital's procedure for identifying infection and don't forget to ask about custodial services. The infection-control team should make regular rounds to examine the environment and ensure all appropriate disinfection methods are followed. Also, inquire if the hospital has conducted emergency-preparedness training and, if so, have someone describe it for you.

"Don't shy away from being nosy and inquisitive," warns Shik. "As a consumer, you want to feel someone is listening to you and being forthright with you -- especially about a life-and-death matter."

Infection control is a constant challenge.

These personnel are essential to ensure that infection control ranks as a priority for everyone at the hospital.
