The core focus of infection control is to try and stop the spread of germs in the hospital. Some patients come to the Hospital with contagious diseases that may infect others around them. Admitted patients who are young, very sick or elderly are more sensitive and can catch infections because their immune systems may not be able to fight germs effectively. Our hospital has implemented systems and processes to help prevent the spread of diseases. In some cases, patients may need to be kept in isolation to stop the spread of infection​
