Abstract
Les fournisseurs de soins de santé travaillent fort pour prévenir la propagation des microbes d’une personne à l’autre. Cela est important parce que certains microbes peuvent causer des infections. Les « pratiques de base » sont les mesures minimales prises en tout temps pour prévenir et contrôler les infections dans la prestation des soins aux patients. Des « précautions supplémentaires » (comme les précautions contre la transmission par contact, par gouttelettes ou par voie aérienne) sont parfois requises pour empêcher les microbes de se propager d’un patient à un autre. La présente brochure explique en quoi consistent les pratiques de base et les précautions supplémentaires.

Abstract
L'équipe de prévention et de contrôle des infections (PCI) est un groupe de prestataires de soins de santé au sein de Santé Nouvelle-Écosse. Nous nous concentrons sur la prévention de la propagation des infections dans les établissements de Santé Nouvelle-Écosse.

This pamphlet is a French translation of “Infection Prevention and Control" pamphlet 1441. The role of the Infection Prevention and Control team is to help other health care providers prevent and control infections by: tracking infections, promoting good hand hygiene and other infection control practices, managing an outbreak or outbreaks, and providing education to all health care providers and volunteers. Infection prevention and control is an important part of patient safety. About one in nine patients will get an infection while in hospital. Common infections may include C. difficile diarrhea, pneumonia (a lung infection), bladder infections and wound infections. This pamphlet explains what you should expect your health care team to do to help prevent infection and what you and your visitors can do to help prevent infection.
