.HAIs cause patients pain and suffering, prolonging hospital stays and increasing costs to the healthcare system (NHMRC 2010)
.To reduce the spreading of infection in the clinical setting.
. To improve patients’ health outcomes in clinical setting.
. The minimum level of infection control required in the treatment and care of all patients to prevent transmission of blood-borne infections including HIV, HBV and HCC .
.To minimize the risk of norovirus outbreaks caused by person-to-person transmission in any institution or group setting.
.To assist departmental schools or other departmental workplace develop practices that prevent or minimize the risk of infection, illness and disease to staff, students and others.
