A clean sheet
There is a clear need for standard precautions for the prevention of cross-infection in hospitals. Indeed, variations in practice are a key cause of cross-infection. Good practice by nurses, such as using aprons and gloves, will not reduce cross-infection by itself. It is vital that all health care workers play a role in reducing the risk of cross-infection by operating to a high standard of infection control practice for all patients in all care settings. For this reason, a written policy of expected practice is required.
