Support and solutions in the areas where you need it most.
It’s a strange dichotomy -- while there is a greater understanding of infection prevention and control today than ever before, the risks seem to be higher. Over the past several months, education on the basics of disease transmission have been shared broadly, and the importance of hand hygiene and personal protection is realised by healthcare workers, patients and caregivers alike.
But that hasn’t made your job easier. Healthcare workers have been asked to do things that previously seemed unimaginable. Emotions are high. Burnout is real. Yet, you continue to answer the call, stepping up to the challenge of reducing the risk of cross-contamination and transmission of viruses and bacteria at your facility – whether from people, care-related factors, the environment or equipment.
With your time limited, you need assurance of the science, safety and efficacy of your infection prevention and control solutions, plus ongoing educational support to combine a good defense with a strong offense. 3M remains your partner in activating science-based problem-solving, not just for what health care was yesterday or today, but for what it will be tomorrow.
