If the patient shares a washroom with others, any frequently touched surfaces must be disinfected after each use.
Plates, cups and utensils used by the patient should be promptly cleaned once they place it outside their room.
Clean plates, utensils and cups separately using hot water and sufficient soap to disinfect the items.
Wear gloves and other protective gear when handling utensils used by the patient. Wash your hands after.
When cleaning surfaces used by a patient, be sure to wear a face mask, face shield, disposable apron and gloves.
Thoroughly clean your hands before and after cleaning as well as after removing any protective gear.
