Preventing disease transmission

We aim to provide internationally recognised, high-quality infection control programmes and procedures to reduce the risk of infection transmission. Our team of highly qualified, motivated, and devoted hospital infection control officers and infection control nurses provide safe practises for the prevention of infections and endeavour for continuous improvement. We also have a Hospital Infection Control Committee (HICC) that provides regular training on infection prevention and control to physicians and other support personnel, with a commitment to protecting all hospital visitors and patients.

Care Bundles, a simple collection of evidence-based techniques offered by Jupiter Hospital, collectively enhance patient outcomes when implemented. In addition, we provide a competency-based training programme for all personnel directly or indirectly involved in the care of comprehensive patients. These programmes consist of:

  • Hand Hygiene:Our hand hygiene policies encourage the use of alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR) in most clinical contexts (as recommended by the WHO). Every month, the success of the training, compliance audit, and novel approaches to improve it is assessed. All health care providers receive training on the importance and procedure as part of education and awareness.
  • Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP) Prevention: Personnel who provide respiratory treatment for ventilated patients provide the most comprehensive care and infection prevention practises for daily ventilator requirements evaluation.
  • Prevention of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI):Hospitals have physician and/or nurse advocates offering evidence-based clinical care to reduce the incidence of CAUTI by employing strict aseptic techniques during catheter insertion.
  • Prevention of Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI):As part of the Care bundle, patients with central venous catheters are evaluated with a daily checklist for insertion and maintenance of CVC.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): As part of this programme, we adhere to providing supplies for personal protective equipment (such as gowns, gloves, eye, mouth, nose, and facial protection), as specified under Standard and Transmission-based Precautions. All of these supplies are available at the nearest point of use. The importance of being aware of the use is emphasised.
  • Injection Safety:As part of routine precautions, we provide safe injection practises for parenteral medicine preparation and delivery outside of the pharmacy.
  • Surgical Site Infection Prevention: The prevention programme is intended to improve infection control practises for SSI prevention. Patients are followed up on after they go home and even when they come to the OPD for a doctor visit, according to CDC standards. For the benefit of the patient, the details regarding the communicating nodal person are underlined.
  • Environmental Cleaning:Environmental cleaning is a fundamental principle followed in hospitals for the prevention of infection and the administration of waste.
  • Reprocessing Of Medical Devices: The Hospital Follows The Most Extensive Protocols For Reprocessing Of Critical Medical Devices. – As a result of our single-use policy, we do not reuse devices.
  • Systems to Detect, Prevent, and Respond to Healthcare-Associated Infections and Multidrug-Resistant Organisms
  • Biomedical refuse Management: Jupiter Hospital adheres to stringent procedures for the storage, segregation, transportation, and disposal of hospital refuse in accordance with national guidelines.
  • Separate Rooms For sick Patients: To protect other patients from the potential of infection, our specialised Intensive Care Unit has isolated rooms NPV for sick patients.
