Materials for healthcare facilities

Patients and family members are a critical part of the healthcare team. You play an important role in preventing infection and staying safe when you visit a healthcare facility. 

Infection Prevention and You materials help healthcare consumers understand the important questions to ask their caregivers to stay infection free. They also inform consumers about infection preventionists, dedicated healthcare professionals who work to protect patients from healthcare-associated infections.
