Infection Control

In response to the increase in cases of antibiotic-resistant pathogen infections at medical facilities across America, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center’s Infectious Diseases Division has established preeminent programs in research, clinical practice, education and training. These programs extend to the Infectious Disease Services at UH Richmond Medical Center, a campus of UH Regional Hospitals.

We conduct regular bacteria surveillance studies with other area hospitals and long-term care facilities. Most importantly, our employees are trained to work in a culture of safety, and we consider every patient and visitor a vital part of this culture as well. It is our policy that hand hygiene be performed by all employees and medical staff to prevent the spread of infection. As a result, our proactive approach to total safety is unprecedented among community hospitals in northeast Ohio.

At UH Richmond Medical Center, we resolve to provide our patients with the very best medical care in a clean, safe environment. With the support of UH Cleveland Medical Center, we pledge to be uncompromising in our commitment to early detection and prevention of hospital-acquired infections.
