The recommendations were developed using the best available evidence and consensus methods by the Infection Control Steering Committee.They have been prioritized as key areas to prevent and control infection in a healthcare facility. It is recognised that the level of risk may differ according to the different types of facility and therefore some recommendations should be justified by risk assessment.
