Infection Prevention and Control Signage

Standardised infection prevention and control signage for Standard and Transmission-based Precautions

Introduction

Standardised signs are available to all health service organisations wishing to increase the awareness of healthcare workers, patients and visitors to the necessary precautions to be applied for all patients (Standard Precautions) and for those patients who require Transmission-based Precautions, due to their known or suspected diagnosis.

The signage is available in several formats using both pictures and icons. Most jurisdictions have also co-badged signage available.

Standardised signs - Approach 1

This approach combines both standard precautions and transmission based precautions into a single poster. Photographic images are used to support the special precautions.

 

Standardised signs - Approach 2

Approach 2 is the same as Approach 1, but using symbols instead of photographic images.

 

Standardised signs - Approach 3

This approach presents standard precautions and transmission-based precautions in separate posters. This approach allows more room for focusing on the precautions, including supporting imagery for the standard precautions.

 

Standardised signs - Approach 4

Approach 4 is the same as Approach 3, but using symbols instead of photographic images.
