The Importance of Preventing Cross- Contamination
Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) can easily spread by touching pieces of contaminated equipment and by not washing hands after contact with contaminated surfaces. If a surface is left uncleaned, it can easily become a source of cross-contamination. Equipment needs to be ready for use at any time. It must be disinfected to transport through already disinfected spaces. If contaminated equipment is moved through an already disinfected area, that area needs to be cleaned and disinfected again.
