Cleaning to prevent the spread of germs

Disinfection procedures

Germs from a person may be found on any object the person touched or on equipment that was used during the person's care. Some germs can live many weeks on a dry surface.

Germs on any surface can pass to you or another person. Cleaning helps prevent the spread of germs.
