The aim of infection control is to utilise available resources in a manner that ensures a safe environment, and provides a maximum level of protection for patients and staff. The five fundamental infection-control measures are surveillance, isolation, hand washing, disinfection, and sterilisation.
The aim of this study was to investigate the status and awareness of infection control policies and procedures among doctors and nurses in three public hospitals in the greater Durban area at district, regional, and tertiary, levels of healthcare.
