Handy collaterals that care staff can use in educating seniors and their caregivers on proper hand hygiene practices:


1. “Your Guide to Managing Multi-drug Resistant Organisms (MDROs)” Booklet 

 
The reader-friendly booklet hopes to help our community care partners educate seniors and their caregivers on what are MDROs and how to manage the condition(s).

For example, the booklet will talk about the difference between being “colonised with MDROs” versus being “infected with MDROs” and how to prevent the spread of MDROs in the community. 

We hope our community care partners will find this booklet useful in sharing and building a common understanding with seniors and their caregivers on the management of MDROs.  

The booklet should only be given to seniors, and their caregivers, who are colonised or infected with a MDRO, and who are using services in your organisation. Upon admission, a staff (preferably with healthcare background) should give the booklet to the senior and his/her caregiver and share with them on the specific MDRO(s) that the senior is colonised with. The care staff should especially highlight the precautions that can be undertaken to prevent the spread of MDROs.

2. “Clean Hands, Good Health” Brochure 


​The brochure is designed to help our community care partners educate seniors and their caregivers on the importance of hand hygiene as part of personal care. The brochure shows clearly the steps to hand washing and highlights the typical scenarios when the senior and caregiver should wash their hands. 

The brochure can be distributed to all seniors and their caregivers where appropriate and who are using services in your organisation. You may choose to provide this brochure upon admission or during a suitable opportunity where the senior and caregiver can be educated on good hygiene practices.
