Generic Infection Control

Safesmart Health and Safety Software & Services

Duration: 30 – 40 min

Every year healthcare associated infections kill approximately 5,000 patients in the UK, and over 6% of hospital patients acquire some form of infection (pneumonia for example) during their stay.

Alongside reduced patient safety, overstretched resources and the immeasurable negative personal impact on patients and their families, this has been found to cost the NHS approximately £1 billion annually; so without a doubt raising the standard of infection control is of utmost importance for the healthcare industry.

This extensive and in-depth course features:

– A completion time of 30 – 40 mins 

– 41 quiz questions 

– Course progress is saved automatically: You can resume where you left off at any time.
