Purpose of the Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Pocket Book

The purpose of the IPC pocketbook is to help all staff working in the health care setting to apply appropriate principles of Infection Prevention and Control while providing care in healthcare institutions for patients including those with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 virus.

Target groups

The intended target audience is all personnel working in all areas of the health care setting: medical, nursing, technicians, laboratory, administrative, and all support staff.

Organizational preparedness for improving IPC measures within the facility and in facilities managing COVID-19 cases

All staff working in the health facility should be educated on standard precautions, transmission-based infection control precautions and prevention of occupational hazards (e.g. sharps management).

Staff should provide education to all patients and carers on the use of standard infection control precautions, especially on how & when to perform effective hand hygiene and use of appropriate PPE when visiting/escorting COVID-19 (suspected or
confirmed) relatives or friends.
