Overview *

Infections can occur after many types of medical procedures. This is particularly true if you are having surgery. Luckily, there are several things that you can do to help prevent infections from developing in the hospital.

Hygiene is very important in preventing infections. Always wash your hands and make sure others wash their hands. Also properly care for skin wounds or catheter sites.

Keeping your weight and any pre-existing health conditions under control can also help you heal after surgery. If you smoke, you should consider quitting before surgery.

Avoid people who are sick. If your friends and relatives feel ill, ask them not to visit.

Always follow your doctor's instructions carefully and ask questions. You should fully understand your treatment plan and expected outcomes. You and your family/friends will be able to better facilitate your recovery.
