Description

Have you heard the saying “cleanliness is next to godliness?” The popular proverb can be found in ancient Hebrew and Babylonian texts but was coined by John Wesley in 1778 and highlights the importance of having measures in place to keep the environment where you care for your loved one or client clean. For example, routinely disinfecting the living space where your client or loved one receives care and washing your hands properly can prevent the spread of illness-causing bacteria and viruses

In this course, you will learn about the difference between bacteria and viruses, with a focus on best practices for preventing the spread of infection, including tips about effective handwashing, applying and safely removing gloves, using hand sanitizer, and disinfecting your client’s or loved one’s living space.
