Infectious Disease Services
CHRISTUS St. Vincent is fortunate to have a highly qualified infectious disease physician who works with us to control the threat of infections and promote the safety of our patients and staff.
Our physicians and staff take many precautions against infections such as wearing protective clothing, gloves, and eye shields when appropriate. Hand washing and hand degermers are practiced by all as these simple acts are actually powerful ways to stop the spread of harmful bacteria. All facility employees do their part to prevent the spread of infection.
Our patients and their family members also are encouraged to take steps in keeping our hospital safe. Hand washing - before and after visits - is a great first step in stopping the spread of infections and disease.
