Implementing Hygiene Protocols

Hygiene protocols are irrelevant if they are not followed and monitored. There are good standardised protocols available to veterinary practices, but one of the key implementation requirements is that a person within the practice, either permanently or on a rotational basis, is made responsible for seeing that hygiene protocols are followed. This person should not necessarily be a senior member of the practice team, but should be given the authority to enforce, with every member of the team, the standards demanded by the protocol.

MRSA, MRSP and other antibiotic-resistant bacteria are posing an increasing risk to animals and humans. The Bella Moss Foundation is at the forefront of efforts to combat these organisms. The work of the Foundation to bring vets, scientists and the public is invaluable. Their work in collating and disseminating practice information and advice is unique, and of worldwide importance."
