Infection Control

Hospital acquired infections are being increasingly recognized as a major cause for morbidity and mortality among in-patients worldwide. Health care administrators and physicians are increasingly concerned about it, but there are hardly any adequately trained infection control professionals available in India. As many hospitals are aspiring for National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare providers [NABH], Infection Control personnel are very likely to be of high value for any large, reputed health care set-up, especially corporate hospitals.

GYD Clinics & Diagnostics offers an excellent opportunity for pursuing a career in Infection Control. GYD is already providing Infection Control Services in several multispecialty hospitals in Hyderabad. This will enable the nurse-in-training to be exposed to a wide range of ‘infection control’ activities such as Hospital epidemiology, Surveillance, hospitals acquired infections, antibiotic policy, outbreak investigations, Cleaning, disinfection & Sterilization and much more!
