It is crucial to ensure surfaces and environments in healthcare settings are cleaned thoroughly and properly in order to prevent infection transmission and keep patients, staff and visitors safe and healthy.

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) can be transmitted in any healthcare setting with approximately 165 000 cases occurring per year, potentially leading to poor patient outcomes, adding extra costs and increasing patient length of stay in hospital (NHMRC 2019).

In addition to patients, HAIs also pose a risk to staff or any other people who enter a healthcare facility (NHMRC 2019).

Therefore, the effective implementation of infection prevention and control is crucial to ensure that high quality healthcare is provided to patients, and a safe working environment is maintained for staff (NHMRC 2019).

Successful infection prevention and control relies on a sound understanding of the modes of transmission and when preventative measures should be taken. This is the responsibility of not only healthcare staff, but also visitors, patients, carers and administrators (NHMRC 2019).
