User: describe local and prganniseanation polices relevent to the prevention and contrl infection

Weegy: Employees’ roles and responsibilities in relation to the prevention and control of infection Infection is a major cause of human suffering. [ Even relatively minor infections can become more serious, leading to major infection and can, in some cases, lead to patient death. In addition to patient suffering, infection causes distress to family and friends. The costs to the health care system of providing care for those with infections are huge. In addition to concerns over the growing costs to health care, the use of antibiotics to treat these infections is thought to be contributing towards the problems surrounding antibiotic resistance. The NHS plan, published in 1999, stipulates that all NHS organisations should have effective systems in place to tackle Health care Associated Infection (HCAI) in order to minimise the risk to patients and staff. For all these reasons prevention and control of infections are issues of very great practical importance for every health care worker. Your place of work will have appropriate guidelines/policies for control of infection and it is important that you locate and read these. Infection control is an issue of health and safety, so is both an employer and employee responsibility. Employees’ roles and responsibilities All employees are responsible for taking action to prevent the spread of infection, in accordance with legislation and local and organisational policies and procedures. They also have a personal and moral responsibility, as members of a caring society and profession. ]
