Infection prevention and control guidelines
2. Hand hygiene
Hand hygiene facilities (alcohol-based handrub dispensers or sinks) must be provided in all examination and treatment areas and in or close to toilets.
Alcohol-based handrub should be provided in disposable cartridges with disposable nozzles, designed for hands-free dispensing. Refillable dispensers must not be used. Alcohol-based handrub should not be placed near a sink, but at point of care and other work areas such as workstations in a reprocessing room.
When building new premises or upgrading existing premises, consider installing hands-free or elbow-operated taps for handwashing, where required. Paper towel dispensers must be installed at sinks.
When working offsite, use alcohol-based handrub.
