Glen's story - hospital associated infections
13 December 2011
The Victorian Infection Control Professionals Association (VICPA) has produced a video to show how hospital associated infections can have a serious impact on a person’s health outcomes.
In Australia each year, it is estimated there are 200,000 hospital-associated infections and many of these infections are preventable.
The VICPA video, Glen’s story, aims to support healthcare professionals in their infection prevention and control initiatives.
The video was produced with the assistance and support of a family who share their experience and the impact that acquiring a hospital associated infection has had on their lives.
