Infection Control

The objective of the Infection Control Department is to reduce preventable infection to the lowest possible level at acceptable cost by mainly performing the following:

  • Advice on isolation procedures and infection control measures
  • Controlling outbreaks by rectification of technical lapses (if any)
  • Infection control audit including inspection of waste disposal, laundry and kitchen
  • Investigation of outbreaks
  • Monitoring of hospital-associated infections
  • Monitoring of staff health to prevent spread of infection
  • Training of staff in prevention and control of HAI

With cooperation between all those involved, the chain of infection can be broken and work towards a healthy environment would be underway. The Infection Control Program at RHUH strives to minimize the risk, prevent and control the transmission of patients/ hospital/ facility/ community-associated infections.
