It covers hand decontamination; using personal protective equipment, such as gloves and aprons; sharps, waste disposal, and educating and informing residents and their visitors. The guide also includes links to additional sources of information. It has been co-produced by NICE and SCIE, and is based on NICE’s guideline on healthcare associated infections: prevention and control in primary and community care and quality standard on infection prevention and control.
