Infection Control Practitioners (ICP) are here to support you!
UHN's Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) department is committed to fostering a culture of safety by providing quality hospital-wide initiatives that reduce the risk of hospital acquired infections for patients, staff, and visitors. This week IPAC is celebrating Infection Control week. Occupational Health & Safety (OHS), Environmental Services, Toronto Public Health, and a number of representatives from Nursing have teamed up with IPAC to showcase how IPAC supports their infection control practices. Info booths will be set up in each of the site lobbies across UHN, with interactive games and prizes, and OHS will be providing flu shots for staff.
The UHN Flu Campaign kicks off today! With flu season around the corner, I encourage all of you to get your flu shot today; it will help protect you and our patients. The vaccine helps us to care safely for our patients as it reduces infection rates and improves patient outcomes. I will be getting my flu shot today, and a list of where you can get your flu shot will be posted on the Intranet later today.
