Infectious Diseases

The control of disease transmission

We seek to provide globally recognised strong quality infection control programmes and practises to reduce the risk of illness spread. Our highly qualified, motivated, and devoted team of hospital infection control officers and infection control nurses provides safe infection prevention practices and strives for continual development. We also have a specific Hospital Infection Control Committee (HICC) that provides regular infection prevention and control training to doctors and other support workers, with the goal of protecting everyone who visits or is admitted to the hospital.

Jupiter Hospital provides Care Bundles, which are a simple set of evidence-based procedures that, when performed collectively, improve patient outcomes. We also provide a competency-based training programme for all workers involved in comprehensive patient care, whether directly or indirectly. Among these programmes are:

  • Hand Hygiene: Our hand hygiene policies encourage the use of alcohol-based hand rubs (ABHR) in the majority of healthcare facilities (per WHO). The effectiveness of the training, compliance audit, and innovative methods to improve the same is evaluated each month. As part of education and awareness, all health care providers receive training on the significance and procedure.
  • Prevention Of Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP):Personnel who provide respiratory therapy for ventilated patients provide the most comprehensive care and infection prevention practises for daily ventilator requirements assessment.
  • Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) Prevention: Hospitals have physician and/or nurse champions that provide evidence-based clinical care to lower the rate of CAUTI by inserting catheters using stringent aseptic methods.
  • Prevention of Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI): As part of the Care bundle, patients with central venous catheters are examined daily with a checklist for CVC insertion and maintenance.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Under this programme, we adhere to providing the necessary supplies for PPE (such as gowns, gloves, eye, mouth, nose, and facial protection), as recommended by Standard and Transmission-based Precautions. These essential supplies are located close to the point of use. The importance of understanding the usage is emphasised.
  • Injection Safety: As part of standard precautions, we provide injection safety practises for the preparation and administration of parenteral medications outside of the pharmacy.
  • Prevention Of Surgical Site Infection:The purpose of the prevention programme is to enhance infection control practises for SSI prevention. According to CDC guidelines, patients are followed up after returning home and when they visit the OPD. The details regarding the communicating node are highlighted for the patient's convenience.
  • Environmental Cleaning: Environmental cleaning is a major principle followed in the medical setting for infection prevention and waste management.
  • Device Reprocessing: The hospital adheres to the most comprehensive protocols for critical device reprocessing. – WE HAVE A SINGLE USE POLICY AND DO NOT REUSE DEVICES AS A RESULT.
  • Detection, Prevention, And Response Systems For Healthcare- Associated infections and multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs)
  • Biomedical Waste Management: Jupiter Hospital adheres to stringent practises for the storage, segregation, transportation, and disposal of hospital waste in accordance with National Guidelines.

Our specialised Intensive Care Unit has isolated rooms NPV for infected patients to prevent the spread of infection to other patients.

  • Infection Prevention Is a Concern for Everyone – Take a look at What You Can Do As A Visitor To Help:
  • Perform Hand Hygiene- Because the best care starts with clean hands, practise good hand hygiene. Hand hygiene is the greatest method of infection prevention. Before visiting the patient, please use our facilities to cleanse your hands and apply hand sanitizer from the nearby dispenser.
  • Avoid Visiting The Patient If You Are Ill - It is best to avoid visiting the patient if you are ill with the common cold, viral fever, diarrhoea, or any other infection.
  • Cover Your Mouth And Nose While Sneezing- To avoid spreading the infection, visitors should avoid sneezing near the patient and cover their mouth and nose while sneezing.
  • It Is Strictly Prohibited For Visitors/Relatives To Eat Or Drink Near The Patient- The hospital provides a modern cafeteria with a large seating space and a pleasant atmosphere. Please use it to sit and eat your meal.
  • Avoid Using Patients' facilities- The hospital has clean and separate facilities for visitors. It is advised to utilise public restrooms rather than the patient's.
  • Sending Flowers or bringing outside food to patients is strictly prohibited- It is strictly forbidden to send flowers or provide food to patients within the unit. We have a legal obligation to follow the Food Safety Act's requirements, and we take the safety, handling, composition, packing, and hygiene of food given to patients in our care extremely seriously.
