ImageFIRST New Hampshire Sheds Light on Article About Infection Prevention in Outpatient Settings


Salem, NH -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/03/2016 -- ImageFIRST New Hampshire is much more than a provider of medical uniforms and a linen service in New England and NH. The organization makes it one of their highest priorities to help ensure that their clients are up-to-date on all of the latest developments and changes in their industry. ImageFIRST New Hampshire recently highlighted an article in the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC) that looked at how healthcare-associated infection outbreaks have transpired in outpatient settings because of a lapse in infection prevention.

The article, "Using medical student observers of infection prevention, hand hygiene, and injection safety in outpatient settings: A cross sectional survey," first discusses how little attention has been placed on infection prevention in outpatient facilities. To learn more about how well infection prevention procedures are being followed, a study was done at 15 outpatient sites across New Mexico. Researchers concluded that infection prevention improvements were needed. More specifically, they discovered that the proper hand washing and injection safety procedures were overall not being followed consistently.

ImageFIRST New Hampshire is a company that is dedicated to helping their clients with infection prevention. The company hopes that by shedding light on this article, they will help outpatient facilities to both recognize the current state of their hand hygiene practices and injection safety techniques, and thus improve their infection prevention procedures.
