Abstract
Health care providers work hard to prevent the spread of germs from one person to another. This is important because some germs can cause infections. Routine practices are the minimum (least) steps taken to prevent and control infections while caring for all patients at all times. Additional precautions (such as contact, droplet or airborne precautions) are sometimes needed to keep germs from spreading from one patient to another. This pamphlet explains the infection prevention and control (IPAC) guidelines included in routine practices and additional precautions. The French version of this pamphlet 1860, "Prévenir la propagation des microbes et infections : Pratiques de base et précautions supplémentaires", is also available.
