On a regular basis, EMS providers come in close contact with patients who are harboring some form of infectious process or communicable disease. Conditions range from the common cold to far more serious issues, such as meningitis, tuberculosis, staph infection and hepatitis. Recent months have highlighted the risks to EMS providers in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Implementing infection control products and devices – from personal protective equipment (PPE), to cleaning solutions and disinfecting technology – along with proper training in airborne and bloodborne pathogen types and methods of exposure, as well as protocols and a regular cleaning routine can greatly reduce the chances of becoming infected by a patient encounter.

Adopting infection control practices can reduce the risk of contracting an illness and spreading it to family and friends, as well as protect future patients from exposure.
