Infection Prevention and Control

As healthcare service provider Infection Prevention and Control is one of the highest priorities at Children’s Hospital Karachi (CHK) and we have a zero tolerance approach to healthcare associated infections (HCAIs). Effective infection prevention and control is an essential component of a quality health service. CHK aims to meet the requirements of the infection control assurance framework by:

1.      Reducing infection related morbidity and mortality
2.      Reducing the cost of patient care by preventing healthcare associated infection
3.      Providing a safe working environment for all

The duties of the Infection Control Department and all healthcare workers are clearly outlined in the IPC documentation sections of CHK.
