Hand Hygiene

Clean hands save lives

You can clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or with soap and water. Your clean hands, and our clean hands, will help to stop the spread of infections.

Why is hand hygiene important?

It is easy to clean your hands, and it is one of the best ways to avoid the spread of harmful germs.

Our commitment to you

You will see our staff clean their hands before and after touching each patient, before putting on gloves and after taking off the gloves.
Our staff clean their hands because it helps to keep you as safe and healthy as possible.

Hand hygiene is everyone's business

When you visit the Sydney Dental Hospital or a Community Oral Health Clinic, please help us to prevent infections. We provide hand rub and wash basins in all our clinics so that everyone can clean their hands.
