WORKING TOGETHER TO COMBAT THE SPREAD OF MICROORGANISMS Hand hygiene is one the best ways you, your visitors and your health care team can prevent the spread of microorganisms.

Did you know that microorganisms are most often spread through your hands? There are two ways to clean your hands: • Using soap and water if your hands are visibly soiled. Rub hands together briskly for 15 seconds • With 70% alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Dispensers are located throughout QHC, including near the entrance of and within each patient room. Rub hands briskly together until alcohol has dried

Your health care team works hard to keep their hands clean. There are four important moments when your health care team must clean their hands: • Before they come to your bedside • After they have come into direct contact with you or anything in your room • After they have had contact with blood or body fluids (ie. if they have assisted you with toileting or changed a dressing) • When they leave your room or bedside

Our patients play an important role in preventing the spread of microorganisms. Make sure to clean your hands: • After toileting • After sneezing or blowing your nose • Before meals • If you are leaving your room

6 QHC Trenton Memorial Hospital


• Before you come back into your room if you have been off the unit for tests, therapies or to walk in the halls You will be provided with a hand wipe on your meal tray to clean your hands before meals.

As a visitor, when you come to a hospital, hand hygiene is your responsibility too. Please clean your hands: • Before entering a patient’s room • After having any direct hands-on contact with a patient (ie. helping with toileting, a bath or feeding a patient) • When you leave a patient’s room • If you use the washroom (we ask that visitors use public washrooms located along the corridor on each unit and throughout QHC)

Isolation Precautions You may require special precautions while you are hospitalized. If so, you will have a special sign posted on the door to your room to guide staff and visitors coming to see you. We call these isolation precautions. If you require isolation precautions, your health care provider will come into your room wearing a gown and gloves if they will have direct contact with you or your environment. They may also be wearing a mask with visor if you are coughing or you have flu-like illness. If you have flu-like illness and you need to come out of your room for tests or therapy, you may be required to wear a mask at that time.

Visitor Information Boards Visitor information boards are located on each nursing unit. They are located near the elevators to help visitors understand isolation signage and how to put on an isolation gown, hand hygiene and other important information.

Remember….

Please ask your visitors to stay home if they are sick with a cough, fever, or have an upset stomach or diarrhea. For any Infection and Prevention related questions, please call extension 2361 to speak with a member of the Infection Prevention and Control Team.

www.qhc.on.ca


Visitors who do not feel well should not visit with patients until they are feeling well again. When you are in the hospital, don’t be shy about telling visitors to stay home if they are not feeling well. That is another big way we can keep infections from spreading in the hospital.

Remember ‌ please do not visit if you are sick with a cough, fever, or have an upset stomach or diarrhea.

HOW YOU CAN HELP US You May Wish to Become a QHC Volunteer All four hospitals of Quinte Health Care have highly supportive and dedicated Auxiliaries which strive to assist us in meeting the challenges of providing health care services to our communities. Volunteers provide support and assistance to hospital staff in a number of areas. Volunteer activities are as varied as the Volunteers themselves, and each and every one makes a difference in the lives of our patients. Our Auxiliary members provide input regarding service delivery processes, and provide an outstanding level of financial support for the purchase of hospital equipment, redevelopment and staff education.

How to Become a Volunteer: Interested in Volunteering? Call or email today to arrange a time to meet one-on-one with the Auxiliary’s Volunteer Manager. Please note: the TMH Auxiliary currently only accepts applications from volunteers 18 years and older. Patient safety is our first priority, so all volunteer positions require the following: Incident-free police background check including vulnerable sector screening, TB test and proof of immunization, completion of the volunteer orientation session including training related to confidentiality, hand hygiene, some hospital policies relevant to volunteers and accessibility. Call the TMH Auxiliary office: 613-392-2540 ext 5454 or email tmaux@qhc.on.ca. Visit the TMH Auxiliary section of the QHC website, under the ‘Volunteer’ tab at www.qhc.on.ca for more information.
