INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL Bacteria and Viruses

1 FACTS

Germs are pervasive in our environment and are easily spread through contact with others, surfaces and inhalation/ingestion.

Common germs

  • Norovirus
  • Influenza
  • Coronavirus
  • Salmonella
  • Hepatitis
  • E-coli

Transmission

  • Person to person via droplets through the air
  • Bodily fluids (sweat, saliva, blood)
  • Touching contaminated surfaces

The Spaulding Classification System characterizes the difficulty to kill germs with disinfecting agents.

It is generally accepted that:

  • Enveloped viruses are easier to kill.
    These include: Influenza, Coronavirus and Hepatitis.
  • Non-Enveloped viruses substantially more difficult to kill.
    These include: Norovirus, Rotavirus.
Te Spaulding Classification System

Residual soil can shelter germs

CLEANING... is removing soil from a surface

DISINFECTING... is killing/reducing germs that can cause disease, odors, spoilage

  • Most disinfectants do not effectively remove soil, if at all.
  • Cleaning well removes soil where germs are found and can multiply.
  • Cleaning well allows disinfectants to work more effectively.
You must clean AND disinfect!

2 INFECTION PREVENTION

EDUCATE

Train employees and reinforce the importance of staying home when sick

Regularly communicate your sick policies, personal hygiene etiquette, and proper infection control procedures

During an outbreak, e.g., flu season, keep close to local/regional guidelines; execute a plan that allows for business continuity

ENCOURAGE GOOD HABITS

Handwashing Frequently for at least 20 seconds – put posters up for reminders

Hand sanitizing Provide hand sanitizing stations to enable ease of use

Cover mouth & nose When coughing or sneezing

Avoid close contact Encourage social distancing behaviors

BREAK THE CONTAMINATION CYCLE

Do not allow germs to travel!

Clean + disinfect
Avoid cross contamination of tools like mop heads

Prioritize high touch surfaces

Use a disinfectant
Check EN classification on label and follow label instructions

3 INFECTION CONTROL

PREPARE

Being ready for everyday infection control can help when an outbreak occurs.

  • Have a written & posted plan for infection control
  • Ensure a stock of cleaning products, tools & supplies
  • Train employees on PPE and keep it available

ESTABLISH

Consistent and frequent cleaning policies & procedures are critical.

  • Proper cleaning and disinfecting procedures should be part of every employee’s training plan
  • Managers are the role models – exhibit the behavior you want to see
  • Post your policies and make them easily accessible

ENFORCE

Enforcing the “good behavior” of cleaning and disinfection can help ensure it’s done right.

  • Catch your employees cleaning and reward the actions
  • Have frequent spot checks
  • Train by doing – when you notice an improper procedure – correct it by showing the right way
