Thibodaux Regional Infection Control
Thibodaux Regional takes infection control very seriously. Greg Stock, the CEO of Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, states. “We have declared war on hospital-acquired infections. We are engaging our entire staff in the crusade to eliminate infections. This may be an audacious goal, but we feel confident in our ability to achieve it. For us, average performance is not good enough. We will not rest until we have pursued every avenue available to eliminate infections.”
Thibodaux Regional Medical Center continues to leverage advanced methods and practices to deploy effective strategies centered around patient safety and infection prevention. The old adage has never been truer: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Hand washing is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infection. At Thibodaux Regional we take hand washing very seriously and encourage patients and visitors to do the same. According to Thibodaux Regional's hand hygiene policy, all staff are required to clean their hands before and after routine patient care activities and after hand-contaminating activities. In order to ensure that proper hand hygiene is being performed, the hospital provides its staff, patients and visitors with ABHR (alcohol-based hand rub) and antimicrobial soap to be used.
