When you come to the hospital, hand cleaning is your job too. Whether you are a patient or a visitor,
do your part to prevent germs from spreading. Make sure you clean your hands often and especially:
• Before and after eating
• After using the washroom
• After sneezing or coughing
Visitors who do not feel well should not come to the hospital to visit. When you are a patient in the
hospital, don’t be shy about telling visitors to stay home if they are not feeling well. That’s another
big way we can keep infections from spreading in our hospitals.
