Patient Safety

Hand Washing Patient Safety Program

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) the single most important thing a person can do to keep from getting sick and spreading illness to others is to keep hands clean by through hand washing.

Staff at St. Mary are highly committed to this distinct patient-safety program. We also are encouraging the community to help in this quality initiative and use the waterless hand sanitizer packets available in baskets near entrances and registration areas and on nursing units before and after visiting a patient or using services at St. Mary.

Everyone has a hand in patient safety.
