The Infection Prevention and Control Team (IPCT) held an event at Ninewells to promote the safe management of care equipment and environment, which was its standard infection control precaution for March.

Staff were able to clean equipment marked with ultra violet powder and had fun using the ultra violet light to check if their cleaning was effective.  They were able to identify the difference between wiping down and cleaning of equipment and the environment.
