Unite for Safety & Better Health
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), appropriate hand hygiene prevents up to 50% of avoidable infections acquired during health care delivery, including those affecting the health work force. Separately, WHO also notes that one in 10 people worldwide fall ill from contaminated food each year.
In championing the importance of hand hygiene and food safety, Regency Specialist Hospital recently organised an awareness drive themed Unite for Safety & Better Health. From educational booths and virtual talks to activities such as quiz, video competition and lucky draw, the 3-day event saw encouraging participation with many also pledging to comply and practice hand hygiene and food safety.
