Terri Springford, Infection Control and Prevention Nurse at Spire Hartswood Hospital

This week on Body Talk, our guest was Terri Springford who is the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse at Spire Hartswood Hospital. With the swine flu pandemic fresh in our minds and concerns about hospital hygiene ever present, Terri explained her crucial role in helping to ensure Spire Hartswood lives up to its reputation of being “safe, clean and comfortable”. She offered top tips for hand hygiene and explained when it’s best to use soap and water and when it’s safe to use an anti-bacterial gel instead.

Some of the questions Terri answered:

What led her to become the Infection Control Nurse?

Do all hospitals have an Infection Control Nurse?

What really matters with hand hygiene?

How do you know if nurses and doctors are following your guidance about hand hygiene

We couldn't finish without some reference to the Pandemic…. We understand Spire Hartswood is on stand-by – what does this mean for the hospital?
