Clean Hands In, Clean Hands Out.
With one simple act, you can help Mercy keep our patients safer: Wash or sanitize your hands on the way in and out. Patients in our hospitals and clinics are vulnerable to infections. Cleaning your hands is the best way to help prevent the spread of germs.
Before entering a Mercy hospital, patient room or exam room, wash or sanitize your hands. Hand-sanitizer stations and public restrooms are available throughout our hospitals and clinics.
Always wash or sanitize your hands after touching any surface in a hospital or exam room, before eating and after using the restroom.
Patient safety is in our clean hands.
Mercy has a hand-hygiene monitoring system with voice reminders for our caregivers. When you hear these reminders, join us in cleaning your hands. Together, we can give patients the safest possible care.
