Infection prevention

UMC Ljubljana is committed to providing a comprehensive infection prevention. We focus on surveillance, prevention, and control of healthcare associated infections, in patients, visitors, healthcare practitioners, employees, volunteers and students. Here are some of the best ways to help prevent infections.


Wash your hands


Hand washing is one of the most effective and easiest ways to prevent the spread of many types of infection and illness in all settings—from your home and workplace to child care facilities and hospitals.















Cover your cough


Povezana slikaInfluenza (flu) and other serious respiratory illnesses like whooping cough, and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) are spread by cough, sneezing, or unclean hands. To help stop the spread of germs, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.

Stay up to date on vaccinations

In our mobile society, over a million people each day people travel to and from other countries, where many vaccine-preventable diseases remain relatively common. Without vaccines, epidemics of many preventable diseases could return, resulting in increased - and unnecessary - illness, disability, and death among children and adults
