Infection control is the name given to policies and procedures intended to prevent the spread of infectious diseases among staff and service users. All of the staff working in a health or social care home or a domiciliary care setting are at risk of infection, or of spreading infection, especially if their role brings them into contact with blood or bodily fluids like urine, faeces, vomit or sputum.
