Infection Prevention for Home Health Care Professionals
Our goal at BAYADA Home Health Care is to continuously improve our work through evaluation, education, and training, so that we can provide the very best services to our clients.
Infection prevention is an important safety issue and annual training is required for all employees who provide care in the home. Our Infection Prevention Program identifies and explains how to reduce the risk of infection. These guidelines contain important information to help keep our employees and clients safe and prevent the spread of infection.
Our Staying Healthy: A Guide to Infection Prevention booklets include standards for:
- Hand hygiene
- Transmission based precautions
- Personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Supply bag use
- Hazardous waste handling
- Bloodborne pathogens
Educating employees is an important part of our mission and vision for the future—to help millions of people have a safe home life with comfort, independence, and dignity.
