Infection control is a branch of medicine in which scientific knowledge is carefully applied with an aim to reduce or prevent spread of harmful microorganisms and their associated diseases to human beings. It is a very important element in modern healthcare. There have been numerous examples of outbreaks and adverse patients events associated with suboptimal infection control practices worldwide. As medicine gets ever more advanced, so are the new ways and opportunities for patients to be infected. Thus, it is vital that every healthcare worker equips him/herself with proper infection control skill set in order to protect patients, themselves and their family.
